Skimming this thread somewhat - I believe the RDF Datatypes design is 
meant to be open to non-XML Schema datatypes defined by fiat, which may 
allow a WG to do what Bijan appears to be discussing - e.g. define an 
owl:integer an owl:real, owl:rational, owl:complex datatypes ....

It may even allow for an owl:real datatype whose value space includes 
all the reals, even those that can't be written down.

It would be another little project though, probably out-of-charter 
(certainly, if the timeline is taken into account).
