[LC response] To Marco Luther

Dear Marco,

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

Thank you very much for the thorough comments. We have implemented all  
the proposed changes to make the OWL/XML serialization validate, see  
the according diffs [1] and [2]. As to the suggested alternative  
handling of the rdf: and xsd: namespaces, we encountered problems when  
applying conversion tools [3] to the modified version, whence we  
preferred to stick with the current (correct) way of specifying them.
