This idea is coming from that we wanted to address the property from 
applications. Object and Datatype properties are the same from this 
point of view, so an URI or a value will be the result of the query.

Your example assumes that Joe's name is not a DatatypeProperty. But I 
think you know what I mean.

something is like this:
Person - is a - Class
name - is a - DatatypeProperty
name - has a datatype of - string
Person - has a property called - name
---
Joe - is a - Person
Joe - has a name - "John"

The problem is addressing Joe's name. The query result would be "John"
