I think this is covered by the open ACTION-290 and - at this point - suggest to answer along these lines.
"We have an open action http://www.w3.org/2009/sparql/track/actions/290 on this in the working group 
and will consider this suggestion in this context."

I guess we should probably answer that several systems implemented property paths in one or the other form, 
concretely I think ARQ and Virtuoso had some support for property paths, right? In the process of the working group, it 
converged to the current proposal.
