The WG hasn't actually decided anything. I hope we can
dispose of this comment without putting a WG decision
in the critical path.

Where exactly is his suggestion? Oh... hm... I see...
Let's respond this way instead:

  Before we get to your specific suggestion, I'd like
  to clarify what look like some misunderstandings of
  the present OWL (and RDF) design.

  [continue as you wrote... then close ala:]

  Is is sufficiently clear now how OWL and RDF are designed to work?
  Are you still interested in persuing your suggestion?
