We use "matches" pretty consistently through the document, though we have a normative ref to 4647 which somewhat coopts the term "matching", especially wrt language tags. Nevertheless, I feel that using a synonym for "matches" on just this section would cost consistency and comprehensibility.

I hacked up some modifications to §2.3 (attached) which make the section actually cover 4647.matches. These changes end up referencing SPARQL functions long before they are introduced (§3) so I don't think this is a good idea.

I think a better solution is to rename 3.1-3.3 to
    * 2.3.1 Matching Literals with Language Tags
    * 2.3.2 Matching Literals with Numeric Types
    * 2.3.3 Matching Literals with Arbitrary Datatypes
which indicates that we are matching RDF terms.

Does this latter solution satisfy you? If so, please respond to this message, prefixing the Subject: with "[CLOSED]". (I forgot to ask you to do that for Comment 1.)
