Well, actually we saw TransitiveProperty in daml-ont.daml and that
triggered our thought. The equivalentWith property is important for
tractable graph stuff and a mathematical model is a good thing.
Anyway, we understand your points and we are looking very forward
to that next go around!
In the mean time, we could easily 'eat' the daml-ont.daml with a
slightly modified version of DanC's rdfp.xsl transformsheet.
