I ran test 2 but had to add to the premises that
:NorthernHemisphere owl:differentFrom :Africa, :Antarctica, :Asia, :Europe,
:NorthAmerica, :SouthAmerica.
in order to have it an inconsistency test (*)

this non unique names assumption is really important
(have to look into the DL tests)

PS used a rule like {: rdfs:fyi :rule20o0. ?C owl:oneOf ?L. ?P rdfs:domain
?C. ?S ?P ?X. ?L neg:item ?X} => {?X log:inconsistentWith owl:oneOf}.
