Jeremy - we once discussed including some pointers to some very large 
ontologies for people to test things on.  The large cancer ontology I 
have mentioned in the past is now available, and will also probably 
be available soon in a number of smaller pieces (to test imports), 
and we think it is in OWL Lite (modulo getting the declarations all 
into the file once the WG finalizes which ones need to be there). 
When you think about the CR/PR solution, consider how things like 
this may play in as well
