Someone asked privately about Euler passing nonentailments and
consistency tests, which it shouldnt be able to do.

I'm curious about that, too.   

I'm thinking of added a tres:note predicate, producing results like
      Pass [1]
      Pass [2]
      Pass [1]

where [1] and [2] would be links to explanatory or qualifying notes, where
people can explain why they think this is passing.   :-)

Also, I'm thinking of a bit of text at the top of each section
defining the term, so at the top of Consistency Tests it would say:
   "Pass" means returning "Consistent"
   "Fail" means returing "Inconsistent"
   "Incomplete" means returning "Unknown", not returning, raising
         and error, etc

... but as I write that I'm not even sure we'd agree (or, more to the
point, how OWL Test Cases reads on this).  Some people might consider
dumping core as a kind of Failure.

Of course we never say (I think) what kind of software might pass or
not pass an Entailment or Non-Entailment test, or what it might
return.   Ah well.
