potentially: yes. But that is would be a bug.

But one can mitigate the issue. There is a separate Working Group running right now (RDF Data Shapes WG[1]) that will provide means to control the structures of the data to see if there is a discrepancy. (Today, based on the the definition of the right domain and range specifications, and some additional OWL definitions, complex Semantic Web reasoners can also detect some inconsistencies, but there are only a few being able to do so.) Although the Data Shapes work is ongoing, we do not have to have a normative dependency on what they do, so it should be o.k.
