It has not that much changed since 8 April TC (except the Appendix
part on new features that has been removed)
It has not  got more reviews from the appointed reviewers at this
time, and the same limitations about its scope, length, etc. stand
I'd liked to see a Primer that provides an in depth understanding of
the OWL 2 semantics in order to guide users in correctly using it to
perform reasoning tasks.

Thus I'm as reluctant as before.

>> * Anchors to individual features added. As requested by Jie, we have

>> * Examples extended and improved. The correctness and style of the syntactic
