Hi Ji,

As far as I remember, the deprecation issue (ISSUE-90) was resolved by  
leaving the owl:DeprecatedClass and owl:DeprecatedProperty in the RDF  
serialisation (and thus in the OWL Full documents as well), but have  
them be mapped to a 'deprecated' annotation on class & property  
entities in the functional style syntax [1].

It appears that the RDF mapping document does not list the mapping  
from this deprecated marker to its RDF syntax. This is either an  
omission, or intended. [2] mentions "Note that Label, Comment, and  
Deprecated are syntactic abbreviations, so they are not listed in  
Table 2. "
