owl:AllDifferent and owl:members

Hi all!

In OWL 2 we have two new n-ary axioms alongside AllDifferent: AllDisjoint
and AllDisjointProperties. In the RDF mapping, the old AllDifferent
construct was applied in combination with the property
'owl:distinctMembers'. For the two new constructs, however, there is the new
property 'owl:members'.

My question is: In order to make things more coherent, should we allow
'owl:members' to be used together with AllDifferent, too? I would be in
favor of this. 

Of course, for backwards compatibility, AllDifferent should further be
usable in combination with owl:differentMembers.
