OWL, the most commonly used web ontology language, has limited provision for handling modular ontologies. Specifically, the owl:imports construct for linking ontology modules lacks support for partial reuse of or localized semantics for the linked ontology modules. We propose an alternative to owl:imports, namely, semantic importing, for linking multiple modular ontologies with support for localized semantics, partial ontology reuse, and distributed reasoning.
