Thanks for the reminder -- Boris has now updated the DS accordingly  
(see diff [1]). At the same time, Boris spotted one more place in  
Conformance where we no longer need to mention a tool's datatype map  
(because this is now globally defined in syntax and Direct/RDF-Based  
Semantics) -- I have also updated Conformance accordingly (see diff  
[2]).
