Mark, for contrast consider the following example:

:David :Likes :apples
:apples :subclassof :fruit

however, it would be wrong to infer 
:David :Likes :fruit

This makes the point that what one can infer from subclass is quite
dependent on the property being consider (:subject does subclass,
:likes doesn't).  This in turn would suggest that there's going
to have to be some rules-per-property, meaning we'll probably
be stuck doing 1.
