[LC response] To Jeremy Carroll Re: (continuation on old) comment on OWL2 design

Dear Jeremy,

Thank you for your comment
on the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language last call drafts.

The Working Group feels that using a separate namespace for some or all
of the new features of OWL 2 or using a different name for OWL 2 itself
would be confusing to the vast majority of Semantic Web users, even
those who might not use all these new features. 

The Working Group believes that all of the new features in OWL 2 are
adequately supported. Much of this support is documented in the recently
revised New Features and Rationale document with working draft available
at http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/New_Features_and_Rationale 

The Working Group will therefore not be making any changes to the design
or branding of OWL 2 nor to the OWL 2 documents in response to your

Please acknowledge receipt of this email to

are satisfied with the working group's response to your comment, and
whether you would like us to record you as Formally Objecting to the
advancement of OWL 2 along the W3C Recommendation Track. (Note that
according to the W3C Process, Formal Objections are made by individuals,
not organizations.)
