Do you mean for OWL 2 DL or all of OWL 2?

My concern is existing tools successfully reason with subclasses of
owl:Class and I believe with subclasses of properties also (this was
discussed on the list a while back).  This capability is critical to
specifying domain specific languages, and metamodeling in general.
Would your proposal mean these tools are not OWL 2 compliant?
