I object to asking a question about a formalism in
(exclusively) intuitive terms.

  # how does existing RDF software handle this datatypes test?

and regarding the 2nd question, since you
made up the name uuid:f89496c0-82c3-11d6-9832-0003931df47c#integer,
please also make up an arbitrary name for the relationship
betwen #age and #integer; i.e. don't use rdfs:range.

Or: ask the question twice: once with rdfs:range,
and once with rdfd:dcv as in
