Removed the subPropertyOf link (users do not need to declare that
lexinfo:subject rdfs:subPropertyOf synsem:synArg as LexInfo already does
this).

Example 8 uses isA... but perhaps we should make this clearer

Updated the definitions... it seems they were out-of-sync with the OWL
files.

Yeah thinking about it makes absolutely no sense to have propertyRange and
propertyDomain in the core, for the very simple reason: how can you
restrict the range/domain of arguments when you can't define whether there
are arguments in the first place!?

There is also a technical dependency as the domain of propertyRange and
propertyDomain should be synsem:SemanticFrame.

As such, I have made the unilateral decision to restore condition,
propertyRange and propertyDomain to the synsem module and to introduce them
all as subproperties of ontolex:usage.
