DAML+OIL Web Ontology Language

2002-06-14 10:49

DAML+OIL Web Ontology Language (Submission to W3C) is mondo bizarro.

The DAML+OIL reference description defines daml:collection by example only and is out of date re parsers

The Axiomatic semantics has very wierd formatting; not sure if that is a conversion from something else

The reference description could not be found and the web site returns one different document

And all of this is debatable since Lucent won't give a Royalty Free license on anything they may have patents on

Lucent are actually one of the copyright holders of the first document
