Re: [poe] Use of cardinality restrictions in the ontology?

That is an important point. It can actually be misleading. A cardinality constraint in OWL + an OWL reasoner may simply deduce that some individual are identical (to be more exact, they are `owl:sameAs`) and not reveal any errors. And that deduction results may actually lead to problems.
