If I remember the example correctly, the value of hasProcessing is
[a dpv:Collect].  So the range specification for hasProcessing only says 
that the type of `a' is  dpv:Processing.
It says nothing about the class dpv:Collect. The fact that Collect is a 
subclass of Processing must be asserted in the ontology.
