List,

can someone please explain the following sentence in the current OWL 1.1 
Semantics draft [1]. The abstract reads:

> [...] OWL 1.1 does not provide an RDF-compatible semantics; ontologies 
> encoded in OWL RDF should be interpreted by converting them into 
> functional-style syntax and interpreting the result as specified in 
> this document.

Does this mean, there will be no RDF/XML serialization for OWL1.1 
models, or will OWL 1.1 merely drop the pseudo-compatibility between OWL 
and RDF Schema?

thanks,
  michael
