[Draft Response for LC Comment 41:]
Thank you for your message
on the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language last call drafts.
The working group has discussed adding standard annotations to OWL 2. Although the working group is reluctant to add new standard to OWL 2 it recognizes that identifying axioms is a very useful feature in general and does not appear to have any problems.
Therefore the a new standard annotation property, owl:axiomID, will be added to OWL 2. This new annotation property have the same limitations as all other OWL 2 annotation properties and will not have any special formal or intended meaning.
Various working group documents will be adjusted to effect the addition. The working group's Wiki records all changes to the working group's documents; you may wish to check at a later time to ensure that this change has been faithfully made.
Please acknowledge receipt of this email to <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> (replying to this email should suffice). In your acknowledgment please let us know whether or not you are satisfied with the working group's response to your comment.
Regards, Peter F. Patel-Schneider on behalf of the W3C OWL Working Group
