Hi all,

The RDF WG intends to recommend that xsd:strings be silently converted to RDF plain literals internally. See Resolution 1 in http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/meeting/2011-04-13.

This would have some impact on SPARQL deployments, as we go to some lengths in a few places to preserve the differences. I'm not sure it should necessarily affect the wording of any of the SPARQL texts, but it's probably worth bearing in mind. It could be that we can simplify some wording, but we should take care not to become dependent on a new RDF rec. for publication.

- Steve
