Just to clarify: it's illegal under simple entailment. It's legal  
under an entailment regime which unifies simple strings and xsd:strings.

That is to say: it's perfectly legal so long as Protégé does not claim  
to be using simple entailment (and I don't think it does).

This is an area that the SPARQL spec does not address: entailment  
regimes live entirely outside of the SPARQL language itself, as well  
as the SPARQL Protocol, so there's no way to find out how your results  
were calculated!
