On this: test:entailmentRules doesn't point to some machine-processable
entailment rules; it names a set of entailment rules via a single
indirection (or lookup), the details of which are in the test case
document.

ie, despite the fact that the (opaque) property has the characters
"entailmentRules" in it, a reader of the test case document would choose
to pronounce it "the entailment rules associated with this name by
lookup in the test case document".

Does this _really_ need changing? Indirection is just one of those
things that happens, surely.
