Na´ve question: Datatypes for RDF Properties?

Hi:

I have a na´ve question about property values for descriptor sets. From the
FORMAL SEMANRICS draft:

    "3.2 Descriptor Set Semantics
    3.2.1 Descriptor Sets expressed as RDF Properties and Values

    A descriptor set contains RDF properties that have fillers that are not
blank nodes and that do not identify either a class or a property, ..."

This would seem to imply that the RDF properties are simple literals or
resources and compound values are not allowed. Is that right? And is there
any possibility for datatyping literals?

Cheers,

Tony
