ISSUE: uniform treatment of literal/data values

TITLE: uniform treatment of literal/data values

DESCRIPTION: The DAML+OIL specs separate the
domain of discourse into datatype values
and individuals, and require ontology designers
to designate whether properties take datatype
values or individuals. As a result, interesting
features like UniqueProperty can't be used
for properties that take string/date/integer
values.

Another result of this design is the distinction
between rdfs:Class and daml:Class, about
which users have asked for clarification.

TEST CASE:
  This inference isn't valid per the current DAML+OIL
  specs; I suggest it should be.
