The Overview is at least meant to be the "entry point" to our spec, and it
deliberately refers to all other documents. So it provides a perspective
that allows one to see the whole of OWL 2, so to speak.

Primer is certainly also ok. But I think our WG should settle on a single
document to recommend to other groups, if someone wants to talk about the
whole of "OWL 2". For me, Document Overview is my favorite, now that we have
created it. Maybe we should discuss this at our next TC?
