[p4-feedback] owl: prefix in OWL functional syntax

Hello OWL support -

I am trying to improve my understanding of prefixes in OWL. I am puzzled 
by observing that the owl: prefix is not used by Protege in functional 
syntax notation. I spent about an hour looking for any documentation of 
this and found none. I have two hypotheses:

1. The owl: prefix is required in functional syntax notation but Protege 
does not use it (neither does the Manchester syntax converter). In fact, 
Protege does not allow it, except that a Prefix declaration of owl: is 

2. The owl: prefix is not allowed in functional syntax notation (except, 
possibly, that a Prefix declaration of owl: is allowed) but that is not 

Is either of these correct? If not, what is?
