Regarding the content of these conditions I agree, even though I find it quite difficult to think about labelling properties trying to abstract from any concept scheme-related consideration. 
I may have however some doubts about the first:

If I understand well, this condition does not discourage strongly the 
use of resources as object of labelling properties. In this case, why 
are we trying to find extra names for the term-as-class proposal [e.g. 
1] to ISSUE-26: RelationshipsBetweenLabels [2], on the (not single, yet 
important) basis that it would be confusing to have a property having 
both resources and literals as possible objects?

PS: most of my comments about labelling issues [3] actually fall into 
[ISSUE-32] not [ISSUE-31]. I'm impatient :-)
