Hi Leigh, good news :)
Some obvious links between your list of "modelling patterns", and the  
"content" and "logical" pattern catalogues in ODP:

- Ordering relation [1] can be linked to the OWL small vocabulary (we  
call those task-oriented, small vocabularies "content patterns"):  
sequence.owl [2]

- N-Ary relation [3] has several counterparts: the W3C SWBPD note on n- 
ary relations [4], the content pattern situation.owl [5], and other  
content patterns for specific classes of n-ary relations  
(participation, classification, part-of, membership, etc.) that can be  
found in the ODP portal

- Topic relation [6] can be linked to the OWL small vocabulary:  
topic.owl [7]

Moreover, it seems that the other types of patterns you have singled  
out: "identifier", "application" and "publishing" were partly covered  
in the literature about ontology design patterns (our tutorial at [8]  
is a pragmatic starting point), but no place has been created yet in  
the portal, specially for the sake of linked data-oriented practices:  
it'd be great if anyone would create space for them in ODP, where  
there is dedicated support for semantic wiki forms, and semantic  
management of reviewing and discussions.
