This doesn't sound very likely.  In Protege 4.0, for example, the tab
for creating an object property is called "Object Properties" and the
options under it include "Irreflexive".  

My take on this is that a Protege user isn't going to get much out of
the OWL 1.0 Overview or Guide or Reference, because these documents  talk a
different language.
