[Swoop] Mutually Disjoint Classes?

There's a proposal to include another construct in OWL which will allow for specifying that all classes in a set are pair-wise disjount:
DisjointClasses(class1 class2 classn)
It should be part of OWL 1.1. More info here:

I don't know how this would be done, but I agree it would extremely
useful. In fact I think it would be great if there was a way to state
than an entire ontology satisfied the pairwise disjoint criteria. I
guess this could be done at the interface level and compiled into
some pretty verbose owl - would there be a cleaner way?
