Brian, please create an issue ID for this: "need negative test case for
aboutEach as a property element."

As to the proposed reorganisation: the vaguaries of CVS being what they
are and the desire to preserve existing URIs of test cases leads me to
disagree; an alternative approach would be to link the appropriate test
cases to the aboutEach issue.
