For the fun, well, during test case work, I've often done test
runs with assumptions (rule sets, rdf triples, owl ontologies)
I used elsewhere (for totally different applications) and I always
found a "no proof found" for the test case's conclusion parts.
I observe that it is the unification of absoluteized URI's that
is not succeeding in such cases.
