I fully agree with Alan and also don't understand why adding annotations
into a restriction would have any impact on the semantics. Perhaps I am
missing something fundamental, but tools like Protege simply ignore
annotation property values during the extraction of the DIG stream on
its way to the reasoner. I guess other tools could and should do the
same. Why is there a problem?
