There was some discussion on removing two of the use cases from NF&R in
response to a LC comment.  The rationale would have been that the use
cases did not support any OWL 2 features (and thus would not have
satisfied the requirements in the abstract for NF&R).  However, it was
determined that they did support the hooks for n-ary datatypes (at
least) and thus that there was reason to keep these two use cases.
