Good point. It is already on our list of issues and also defined in the 
VOWL 2 spec: http://vowl.visualdataweb.org/v2/#individuals
We will not go for the VOWL 1 representation in WebVOWL for several 
reasons, but use the recommended implementation in the sidebar (as you 
also proposed). We may, however, not list all individuals but only a 
subset (if there are many), as VOWL focuses on the TBox and as VOWL-JSON 
files could become quite large if we would include all individuals. We 
may use separate JSON files for TBox and ABox in some future version of 
WebVOWL, but this requires some major structural changes.

Do you have a good example for such an ontology? Or for any other 
ontology that contains many individuals?
