Would it be ok to change the conclusions of the 5 approved tests cases 
below to be condition formulas instead of document formulas?   That way, 
all the approved and proposed test cases would have condition formulas as 
conclusions.

Re: [RIF] test case conclusions






I'd say that conclusion should *never* be a document formulas, for two
reasons:
- BLD defines conformance only for entailment of condition formulas; not
document formulas
- things should be kept simple, i.e., all test cases should use the same
format, and many condition formulas (e.g., those containing quantifiers
and/or disjunction) cannot be expressed as document formulas

Best, Jos
