Sorry Dan I had missed your message:

>(where is the RDF core manifest, btw? I don't recall seeing it.)

Files named Manifest.rdf
e.g.
http://www.w3.org/2000/10/rdf-tests/rdfcore/Manifest.rdf

Why? personally I quite like them ...
(Genuine question, perhaps not very relevant)

but ...

OK, I'll go with these.

(I think I'll omit the F in Fxxx e.g.
for the feature InverseFunctionalProperty I will use a directory named
InverseFunctionalProperty)

I think it will be easier to navigate if xxx (usually) refers to some item
in the owl namespace.

For all the test types I imagine lazy evaluation ... i.e. we might have a
sketch of our test types now, but we really only have a test type when we
have an instance of such a test type!

Yes, but the only examples we have to date are good RDF, just improper use
of owl namespace (non-language features).

Oh yes, that works.
Particularly if we generate index.html files (or whatever they are) which
expose only the "good" files. This also works for the N3 stuff etc.
