[Draft Response for LC Comment 65:] MS8
Thank you for your eighth message
on the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language last call drafts.
Datatype declarations are currently in the functional syntax for three reasons:
1/ For symmetry, allowing all entities to be declared.
2/ To better capture RDF graphs with typing triples.
3/ To allow for named dataranges.
