Ah, in that case I was under a different impression. I had thought 
that the ability to track these editorial delicacies was the primary 
purpose of having this rather odd format in a normative document.

Clearly I have not handled this properly, I apologize.

Under the circumstances, if your interpretation of the TR page is 
official W3C policy then it might be better to remove my name as an 
editor on the TR page. I believe it is there only as a courtesy in 
any case, and the document could still acknowledge my contributions 
to the relevant sections. I did almost none of the actual editorial 
work on this document as it stands, and I think I would prefer to 
feel free to criticize it than to have my name on it.  I do not 
particularly like the way that the semantics is presented here. In 
particular, the abstract syntax seems to me to introduce a large 
clutter of misleading and unnecessary terminology, and if I had 
written an OWL semantics this would have been relegated to an 
appendix. So maybe I will :-)
