Unfortunately, I don't think that this does the trick.  An ontology
identifier is, I think, a URI reference.  At least that is what the second
requirement appears to be saying.

I believe that you want something very different, perhaps something along
the lines of 

[[[
If the language supports user-displayable natural language labels for an
object, then it must support multiple alternative labels for that object.
This can be used, for example, to view the ontology in different natural
languages. 
]]]
