Yes this is technically possible, yet to be considered as input for a 
W3C standard, the proposed vocabulary would be its own language and not 
"just" an extension to SPIN. (For a complete SPIN mapping, the values of 
:property would also require an rdf:type, which here is "inferred" to be 
:PropertyConstraint). I will publish the full write-up of what I propose 
in January once the W3C shapes group has made progress with the 
requirements phase [1].
