Yes, it would be possible to extend xsd:string so that this works, as explained in this email

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/semantic-web/2010Mar/0037.html

But also see the follow up

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/semantic-web/2010Mar/0038.html

And as we don't control the xsd: namespace, we can't tell if they will use this
interpretation or the inverse.

  In the case of the cert ontology we can define a datatype to also be such a
relation. See:
