At the last teleconf we talked about testing activity streams.

As activity streams [1] is in json-ld, it is also rdf. One could therefore
consider it to be an ontology. One could therefore try to find out
what types of testing practices ontology engineers use to test their
ontologies. 

One type of tests one can do is to write up graphs that use the ontology
and see if after applying some reasoning from the ontology one arrives
at inconsistencies - usually these show up as there being some element
of a set that should also be empty. This is easier with ontologies that
have some owl constraints.

What other methods does one have to test ontologies?
