Hi François-Paul,

In principle, it is NOT OK for a property to be a subproperty of both
gr:qualitative-, and gr:quantitativeProductOrServiceProperty.

These two properties, (or rather their expected values, an instance of
the class gr:Qualitative-, gr:QuantitativeValue respectively) are
intended to be disjoint or mutually exclusive by definition.

In case it helps, there is more info about the typical usage of these
properties and their expected values on the GoodRelations wiki:
- http://www.heppnetz.de/ontologies/goodrelations/v1.html#qualitativeProductOrServiceProperty
- http://www.heppnetz.de/ontologies/goodrelations/v1#quantitativeProductOrServiceProperty
- http://www.heppnetz.de/ontologies/goodrelations/v1#QualitativeValue
- http://www.heppnetz.de/ontologies/goodrelations/v1#QuantitativeValue

I could point to many more usage examples of these two properties if needed.

Also, in case you can share, it would be interesting to know the
modeling problem that you were trying to represent via this
hypothetical subproperty of both gr:qualitative-, and
