[protege-owl] range of owl:minCardinality in Protege3.4beta504

I apologize for the delayed response.  This is an interesting message.

I am 90% sure that this is trivial to fix in Protege.  The places  
where these assertions live is in the OWLSystemFrames class.  I  
believe that this is a one line change.  There are probably many of  
these issues - for historical reasons the Protege 3 owl system model  
are not what it should be.  Some fixes like this are trivial (I  
believe) but there may be some that are more difficult.  I will try to  
change the range of the *Cardinality properties tomorrow because I  
think that there might be a build coming up.

Let me know if you find other discrepancies and I will try to do a  
systematic search to find the low hanging fruits.
