Yes. This is the bit that I had missed earlier but had just discovered 
in the owl1.1 example (in the family.owl file from
www.owldl.com).  Now I understand where the added scoping of the range 
for the restricted DatatypeProperty
was coming from.  I agree that this addresses the same need that my 
suggested DataIntersectionOf constructor was
intended to fulfill, and thus there is no need for the new constructor.
