Seamlessly. 

What you see there is the "source code" of the tests. They will be translated into the format used in the Test Wiki (according to what is described in the "Conformance" document), and then being uploded there. So there will be absolutely no difference to what is already around: One test, one entry in the Test Wiki.

There is nothing different. There is, of course, a common naming scheme: all test cases start by "rdfbased-...". And they will be marked with the "RDFBASED" flag, and whatever is needed according to the test ontology to say that they are specifically intended to be used for implementations of the RDF-Based Semantics. But nothing else.

Except for: I will, on the fly, generate an overview page, which will point to all the test cases in the Test Wiki and provide additional describing texts. But that's just for convenience of people who care, and is only planned as a page in the OWL Wiki (not necessarily in the Test Wiki), at the address I gave in my previous mail.

It's certainly late, but not too late, I'd say. Test suite production is what is currently happening in our WG.

I'm not sure what you mean by "part of our documents". It is simply meant to be yet another bunch of test cases in the test wiki, specifically addressing OWL 2 Full.
