There's no particular problem. It's just that all of the test cases
in rdfms-rdf-names-use are about whether rdf names can be used in an
RDF document as node element, property element and/or property attribute
name. However, as rdf:aboutEach and rdf:aboutEachPrefix have been removed
from RDF, use of these two names is illegal independent of their place in
an RDF file.

To dive a little deeper into the subject: the three test cases mentioned
earlier and the two test cases from rdfms-abouteach each cover a different

rdfms-rdf-names-use/error-009.rdf: aboutEach as node element
rdfms-rdf-names-use/error-010.rdf: aboutEachPrefix as node element
rdfms-rdf-names-use/error-020.rdf: aboutEachPrefix as property element
rdfms-abouteach/error001.rdf     : aboutEach as property attribute name
rdfms-abouteach/error002.rdf     : aboutEachPrefix as property attribute name

The one situation that is missing is the use of aboutEach as a property
element. So maybe it should be added? Also, IMHO, it would be nicer to
group these test cases together, e.g. in directory rdfms-abouteach.
