Why -  want to unpack this. Is it because the OWLAPI that we are using
on the test site should be an exemplary implementation?

There is an OWLAPI v3 that is, as I understand it, almost ready.
Perhaps it could be swapped in to the manchester site we are using for
these translations.

Yes.

Because, as the page says, they are manually translated to RDF and are
normative, and if they have been approved there have been two
implementations that have passed the test, which was our decided upon
criteria.

I do think the web site should be cleaned up - we shouldn't offer to
dynamically translate to RDF if we have a hand written version, and we
should perhaps just remove the links to the service until it works
adequately.
