You may need to update the version of the ontology you're looking at as
I've made notes in the comments briefly saying the following:

It is impossible to avoid OWL Full in such a way that the range of a
*Style is either a string or an object. There are owl:DatatypeProperty
and owl:ObjectProperty classes, and not until OWL Full can they overlap.
  This is not so much a bug as it is a limitation of the modelling
choices we made.

I managed to cut the ontology down to OWL DL, but I suppose for
correctness' sake I should really bring it back to OWL Full; those cuts
left out important information.
