Dear all:

Is it okay to use xsd:anyURI as the range for a owl:DatatypeProperty ?

Sometimes, it could be handy to define a property that can hold URIs  
that may either be conceptual elements (owl:Class etc.) or data  
instances. Using annotation properties is no option, since I want to  
make the property rdfs:subProperty of a more generic property.

So is the following okay?

foo:myProperty a owl:DatatypeProperty ;
	rdfs:subPropertyOf foo:anotherProperty ;
	rdfs:domain gr:ProductOrService ;
	rdfs:range xsd:anyURI .

I explicitly want to avoid standard reasoning on URI literals attached  
via this property.

Best wishes
