Three possible approaches to publishing tests:

A) as an incremental revision of OWL 1.0 Test Cases
B) as a separate rec track doc that lists only new OWL 1.1 tests, and 
quite possibly uses different conventions etc.
C) off the rec track

here are some options:

A)
   resurrect code that ran the database and db dump ....
   add new features to that code to support:
    - additional OWL 1.1 tests
    - additional annotations of old OWL 1.0 tests to reflect any changes 
in OWL 1.1 to those old tests (e.g. an OWL 1.1 system would classify 
this file as DL, even though an OWL 1.0 system would classify it as Full).
   hence move towards a new OWL 1.1 test cases rec that is clearly an 
incremental revision of OWL 1.0 test cases

B) ignore OWL 1.0 tests and have separate approach to OWL 1.1 tests
    - could be an OWL 1.1 test rec
   C)
    - could simply be a set of OWL 1.1 tests, without a rec track document


====

Option (A) would minimally require some effort by me specifically to 
kick it off - the old code was more abandoned on publication of the rec 
than mothballed.

Option (A) comes with a process, the process used by the previous OWL 
WG, for test approval etc. In any case, we may wish to either reuse or 
revisit this process.
