>> To model in OWL a route through several cities, I do not know what is
>>> good practice: use rdf:List , or rdf:Seq , or something else .
>> You are thinking at the rdf level of abstraction and not the owl level.
>> If you use rdf:List or rdf:Seq then you will have an owl full
>> specification. Reasoners generally will not work and it is very likely that
>> the meaning of the ontology will not be the same for each reader.
>> Nick Drummond has given several presentations where he has described how
>> to do what you want in OWL and exactly what you can say in OWL. A quick
>> google search gives the powerpoint presentation  where he describes the
>> approach. There is also an ontology that you can find here .

> As exemplified in :
> What I regret is that the OWL List ontology is not a standard ontology ,
> but it's not a big deal.
