Id rather you didnt at this stage. The RDFCore may well decide 
tomorrow to agree with DAML and do things right, and there would then 
be little point in putting this debate out into the world. I think 
the core WG would feel that its business was being conducted a little 
too much in public if this was plastered onto rdf-logic at this 
stage, before it has been able to even discuss its response to the 
comments from DAML+OIL. Could you at least wait a few days? I will 
report back to the JC as soon as possible.

Thanks for your forbearance.
