A few comments and a question.

I suggest not using rdf:parsetype="Literal" - instead use xsd:string.

I suggest not limiting the output of a test run to be a document.  It is
entirely possible that the output of a test run is a fragment of a
document, or some other kind of entitity.  

I suggest ensuring that the ontology is in OWL Lite.  I think that the only
reason that the ontology is not in OWL Lite is that is not an OWL class.

	Fatal error: exception Owl.Syntax("Non-class uri for description: <>

It is not possible to correctly use xsd:duration in OWL (and RDF) as the
value space for xsd:duration is not well-defined.  This is only mentioned
in a comment, but I suggest that even this use is not appropriate.

There is a mixture of rdf:about and rdf:ID in the document.  I suggest
moving entirely to rdf:about - strictly to prevent accidental occurrence of
two rdf:ID for the same name causing an RDF syntax error.

How does one report success in passing the syntax part of a test?
