Andrea, thanks for looking! Quick response:

> 1. Would it be possible to include a diagram of the defined classes and properties? Without it, it is not so easy to understand how they relate, and the overall data model.

Would this do? We had it in there at one point but it was removed as it did not reflect aspirations -- I'd be very happy to put it back again for now: https://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/ssn/XGR-ssn-20110628/images/OntStructure-Overview.jpg


> 2. 2. The spec is missing a list of the used namespaces, which is useful to know which vocabularies are re-used. Also, in addition to the namespace URI, the spec should also state which is the preferred namespace prefix.

The namespaces are there (see the table of contents).  Preferred prefix is not (but easily done).

We used the rather out-dated "LODE" already for this purpose -- and we certainly need to change it to something better. Can we consider this for after the FPWD?

Thanks, Kerry.

Just a couple of preliminary comments:

1. Would it be possible to include a diagram of the defined classes and properties? Without it, it is not so easy to understand how they relate, and the overall data model.

2. The spec is missing a list of the used namespaces, which is useful to know which vocabularies are re-used. Also, in addition to the namespace URI, the spec should also state which is the preferred namespace prefix. 
Finally, it would be good to include in the OWL specification a description of the ontology using VOAF:

Cheers,

Andrea
