Status: No comments raised on mailing list

3c) Proposal to close issue 2.3 Adding Properties to Other Classes
Status: Wording changes proposed by Jeff Heflin in
New Proposal: CLOSE with amended wording (per Jeff msg):
  Our Working group has decided to use RDF/XML as our exchange
framework and that the semantics of our documents will be carried by
the triple store corresponding to this document (see resolutions of

there does seem to be consensus it is a desirable feature.  It is
provided for in DAML+OIL and will be provided in OWL.

4) Proposal to POSTPONE issue 4.8 Trust and Ontology
Proposal: This issue was raised by a comment to public-webont-comments:
