that looks good. D entailment occurs twice, but that's just a copy and
paste error I assume.

In a sense ../entailment/OWL-Direct is the same as ../owl2-profile/DL
and ../entailment/OWL-RDF-Based is the same as ../owl2-profile/Full.
That is why DL and Full are not really profiles, but an OWL EL
reasoner for example also applies the direct semantics of course. To
be consistent with OWL though, not creating the Full and DL URIs might
make sense.
