the theorem to hold, the entailed ontology should not contain DifferentInfividuals. This minor oversight is demonstrated by the fact that the ontology A(a) B(b) DisjointClasses( A B ) entails Differentindividuals( a b ) under the DirectSemantics; however, the OWL 2 RL/RDF rules do not entail the triple <a, owl:differentIndividuals, b>. The bug was in that DifferentIndividuals involves negation, but the OWL 2 RL/RDF rules preserve only the positive facts. We can fix this by deleting DifferentIndividuals from the list of allowed assertions in the entailed ontology. This change obviously does not impact the implementations; therefore, I believe we can just fix this bug in the Wiki without too much trouble. Please let me know if you object to this.
