You cut at the wrong place.

It's not *essential* for the Tabulator.

I would argue that *this way of marking* display properties isn't  
essential either. It may be unchangable legacy right now. But the  
functional difference between

	displayName rdfs:subPropertyOf rdfs:label.

and
	displayName annotatedToBeOfType  DisplayInDetailView

is not great. Actually, it's better in the latter.

Tim said that we should change modeling to accommodate Tabulator and  
the OWL DL systems should be modified. But one could as easily put  
things other way round and ask Tabulator to change.

(Legacy *user* issues are different, IMHO.)

Bijan.
