IMHO this is a use case that should work too.
The revised Pivot OCL implementation associates an optional
behavioralType with each DataType, so that e.g. ELong has an Integer
behavioralType. The OCLforUML profile supports configuring this for
arbitrary user types. For DataTypes with an instance class, the known
Java types are mapped to Inreger / Real.
The use of isInstance() for DataTypes is very suspect, so perhaps you
have a bug to fix (or to report against the Classic OCL).
My view of precision in OCL (and OCL-extending tools) is:
a) User types are loaded from model
b) OCL evaluations proceed, using the behavioral type where necessary
resulting in Integer/Real internal working variables
c) OCL results are saved to the model with Integer/Real
validated/converted to fit the model element's type
