Hmm.  I'm not sure that this is exactly what we decided.  I think that
the loose intent was that if we didn't go disjoint then float and double
might get in.

We should probably get an OK from Oracle, at least, for this change,
which I think would not be forthcoming.

>From http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/meeting/2009-02-23:

  Ian Horrocks: so if float and double are not disjoint, Oracle would
  like to support them in RL, and if they are disjoint you would not
  want them in? ←

  Zhe Wu: yes ←
