Hi Enrico,

Are there existing implementations of SPARQL that incorporate OWL Direct 
Semantics in the manner you're proposing?

Bijan, Birte -- do the systems that you're familiar with currently 
implement SPARQL with OWL Direct Semantics in the manner that's in the 
current entailment document, or is it not yet implemented at all?
