If that's the case then I suspect we will end up aborting the LC vote.
That understanding of datatyping gets into too many places for it to be simply 
an editorial action to fix it.

Can I ask a concrete question:

_:a rdf:type owl:Restriction .
first:p rdf:type owl:DatatypeProperty .
first:p rdfs:range xsd:byte .
first:p rdfs:range xsd:unsignedInt .
_:a owl:onProperty first:p .
_:a owl:cardinality "129"^^xsd:nonNegativeInteger  .
first:john rdf:type _:a .

xsd:unsignedInt and their relationship.

What should a complete OWL Consistency Checker that only knows about integer 
and string return?

My text says: Unknown
Without it I think we have to say: Consistent, despite the test case being
