2.2 Document review
Chance for authors of Reqs, Guide, Overview, Ref to update us on any 
status change (none necessarily expected)

3.0 Technical Agenda (60 min)

3.1 Name change on "owl:sameClassAs"  (Guus Schreiber)

Several people have suggested changing the name of sameClassAs to 
sameMembersAs or some other term more clearly suggesting the 
extensional nature of this construct.

3.2 Annotations

The treatment of RDFS annotations in OWL Lite/DL must be resolved by 
the working group.  There have been several strands of email on this.

Process note: annotations are motivated by our Requirements document 
- no WG decision on their status has been recorded that the Chairs 
can find.  Therefore, this is not a reopening of any issue - it is a 
clarification necessary to meeting our own self-imposed requirements:

  The current proposal, by Jeremy [2], is to include all of

3.3  Discussion of fixing inconsistency with respect to Owl Lite and 
defined classes.

The chairs are NOT at this time agreeing to reopen the issue of 
whether defined (complete) classes are in Owl Lite.  However, Jeremy 
has identified an inconsistency in our technical solution with 
respect to what graphs are in Owl Lite and what aren't [3].  The 
purpose of this bullet is to examine where we stand, identify the 
inconsistency and see if we can decide on a technical approach to 
resolving it.
