Dear all!

I am trying to find out, from inspecting the OWL 2 specification, whether an
OWL 2 DL ontology can contain typed literals with datatypes that have been
defined by means of a datatype definition, as specified in Sec. 9.4 of [1].

For example, is the following text given in Functional Syntax a
syntactically valid OWL 2 DL ontology, or not?

    Declaration(DataProperty( ex:hasAge ))

    DatatypeDefinition( ex:Adult
        DatatypeRestriction( xsd:integer
            xsd:minInclusive "18"^^xsd:integer ))

    DataPropertyAssertion( ex:hasAge ex:alice "42"^^ex:Adult )

In the case of a positive answer, my next question is: does adding the
following axiom lead to a syntax error, or does it lead to a semantically
inconsistent ontology?

    DataPropertyAssertion( ex:hasAge ex:bob "14"^^ex:Adult )
