Problem in definition of satisfaction, point 5

Turner, David

In the definition [1] of satisfaction of an ontology by an
interpretation, point 5 says

   I satisfies each ontology mentioned in an owl:imports
   annotation directive of O.

This recursive definition is ill-defined if the graph of owl:imports is
ill-founded (in particular, if there is a loop).
