- Also as a reaction on the LC comment I have removed all the range declarations. Declaring the range to be xsd:string is risky, because it imposes a datatype on the literal when it can just be a plain literal (ie, without any datatype). (Yes, this is messy, maybe the new RDF WG will clarify this, but the present situation with this is as it is...). Ie, I would prefer not to have any range declaration whatsoever. Note that all properties are defined to be owl:DatatypeProperties, ie, we exclude RDF Resources from the the possible values altogether already.
- Nathan, I am not sure what you mean by your remark on section 9, but there is now a definition of all the terms in appendix B of the latest draft. Doesn't that cover what you refer to?
