If we use OWL 2 DL, there is a strict separation between annotation
properties, object properties, and data properties, i.e., an annotation
property cannot be at the same time an object property or a data property.
See OWL 2 Structural Specification section 5.8.1. (
http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-syntax/#Typing_Constraints_of_OWL_2_DL)

What is allowed is using a URI as both a named individual and a class name
(the Punning feature)
http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-new-features/#F12:_Punning

p.s. I don't have a write access to the wiki, so maybe you could add these
to the wiki if you wish.

best regards,
Adila
