As I recall the discussion at the Amsterdam F2F -- I had wondered if such
features would be needed by biomedical ontologies and thought that I was
told that this wasn't the case.

The use cases he cites are compelling (at least to me), and if indeed
qualified cardinalities *are* needed to support these then I strongly
support reopening the issue.
