I only just realized that OWL 2 RL does not have the standard OWL 2
semantics, but rather the RDF-based semantics, at least according to the
conformance document [1].  This of course completely horrible, and I
sent a comment about this to the owl-comments list [3]; I hope they will
In the embedding of RIF-OWL 2 RL combinations [2] I was assuming that
OWL 2 RL had the standard OWL 2 direct semantics, and the embedding of
combinations is based on this -- indeed, an embedding of the RDF-based
semantics is not feasible in RIF.
I'm hoping that the OWL people will fix the situation.  In the meantime,
I included a comment saying that it we do not consider the "normative"
RDF-based semantics, but rather the direct semantics for OWL 2 RL.

Best, Jos
