http://schema.org/rangeIncludes
Relates a property to a class that constitutes (one of) the expected
type(s) for values of the property.

http://schema.org/domainIncludes
Relates a property to a class that is (one of) the type(s) the property
is expected to be used on.

AFAIK both of those don't cause any inferences so in a way they already
act in a similar way to rangeHint and domainHint which you propose.

If rangeIncludes and domainIncludes have some *formal* consequences I
think they could use bit more of documenting.
http://schema.org/docs/datamodel.html

BTW James M Snell in Activity Streams 2.0 uses owl:unionOf to specify
multiple types for domain and range. Maybe (domain/range)Includes could
act just as hints and schema.org could use something similar for
expressing *formal* consequences?
