[protege-owl] Domain/Range vs OWL Restrictions

I have a modelling question.
Lets say for example I have Class Student and Class Course and there is an
objectProperty isEnrolled whose domain is Student and range is Course.
Now, if I had an OWL restriction on the Class Course saying that
a owl:Class ;
[ a owl:Restriction ;
Does that make my ontology "stronger"?
Does this have to do with the open world assumption, meaning that if I only
use the domain/range (which is RDFS) and I use a reasoner, then something
else could be classified in that group? But if I have an OWL restriction as
the one described before, then the reasoner won't classify it there?
What if I only use this OWL restriction and don't use the domain/range. What
implications does that have.
