This has been an interesting exercise for me at that time, and helped me to
better understand the power of sub property chains. It is nice to see that
something like this can actually be expressed within OWL 2 DL. But directly
supporting this as a feature in the OWL language itself would look rather
strange to me.

So I concur: +1 for REJECTING this issue.
