Following this up, the test files:

RDF     :       http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#cardinalityQ in OWL Namespace
RDF     :       http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#hasClassQ in OWL Namespace
OWL-Full:       NO

RDF     :       http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#hasClassQ in OWL Namespace
RDF     :       http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#maxCardinalityQ in OWL Namespace
OWL-Full:       NO

RDF     :       http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#hasClassQ in OWL Namespace
RDF     :       http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#minCardinalityQ in OWL Namespace
OWL-Full:       NO

are described in the Manifest files as being OWL-Lite. However, referring
to the above, they are not, as they include URI references in the OWL
namespace which are not in the RDF Schema. I realise that in this case
this is the point of the test, but the Manifest should reflect this,
particularly if the test ontologies are to be used to test things like
species validators.

Similarly for


which are described as being OWL-Full in the Manifest, but these are
side-effects of the problems I highlighted earlier.
