Jim, I agree and I've tried to do that for
owl:TransitiveProperty and owl:unionOf in the
test repository http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/

The gist is that
( <http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/pathTransitiveP.n3>
  <http://www.w3.org/2001/10/daml+oil> )
  log:entails
  <http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/pathTransitiveC.n3> .

( <http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/unionOfP.n3>
  <http://www.w3.org/2001/10/daml+oil> )
  log:entails
  <http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/unionOfC.n3> .

This is using an RDF/N3 presentation syntax
but the RDF/XML resources are there as well
(I hope with not too many bugs, as I
had to do the RDF list stuff by hand
instead of using CWM's N3-to-RDF)

I'm looking forward to the discussion during
