I think we should wait to see if these get passed - I'm not yet 
convinced that these are not passable -- in discussion with my group, 
they feel the primary problem with these two problems is that they 
have so much going, not that they cannot potentially be handled -- we 
are going to look at them more closely -- to date we simply haven't 
attacked them because we've been looking at other problems which are 
easier, and we suspect that other implementors have done the same.

p.s. Even if these do prove to be too hard to prove consistent at the 
current time, I don't see how that would change the response to Merry 
-- proving things consistent is not the only reason to have OWL...
