 From my reading, I believe that would solve the problem. I should  
also mention that the turtle spec allows any lexical representation  
for xsd:decimal values as well, so this might be an issue for other  
test data. Boolean values (and integers) don't seem to require  
explicit literal form as turtle uses canonical form when parsing them.
