Sorry for the delayed response.

Seems that we don't quite agree on the how much additional cost by 
leaving axiom triples out.
I am glad to see at least we agree that it requires a more 
sophisticated  implementation. :) 
Can I  ask the WG then to simply the mapping so that unsophisticated 
developers like me
have an easier time implementing OWL2 in a commercial product. I believe 
that is a very reasonable
