actually, the first one you cite raises issue about the quality of 
the ontology engineering of the thesaurus and not on OWL (which is 
used to publish the thesaurus which is developed separately by other 
tools - NCI is considering moving to OWL tools in parts of their 
process precisely because it would help solve some of these)

The second paper argues that to improve the ontology one might have 
to use OWL-Full.  I won't argue with that :-)
