Hi Antoine:

Yes, that is how I actually do it, but I wanted to use just one textprop in the example.

The Manchester OWL 2 validator says your ontology is OWL 2 Full if you use owl:DeprecatedClass (or owl:DeprecatedProperty, I don't remember).
The Annotation property way is much better for our tools, anyway.
