Question on permitted datatypes

Reading the Prov-dm (and prov-n) I see there is a table of permitted datatypes. I am wondering whether it is a good idea for this group to spend time on listing those. At the moment the RDF WG is looking at the latest incarnation of the XML Schema datatypes to update the datatypes that RDF is interested in; the OWL 2 and RIF WG-s will also update OWL 2 and RIF accordingly now that the XML Schema datatypes' latest version is a standard. Isn't it better and less error prone if this working simply refers to either RDF or (if, for some reasons, it wants to restrict things) to OWL 2 instead re-listing the datatypes in these documents?

Just wondering...

Ivan
