While the answer is correct, I don't think this fully answers his query. Seems like what he's asking for is for unknown datatypes to be treated as numeric types (unless there's more information).

To be blunt, this sounds plain crazy to me, e.g.
   "23"^^xsd:hexBinary < "24"^^xsd:hexBinary
and
   "23"^^xsd:hexBinary < "ff"^^xsd:hexBinary
is a trivial example of where it will cause user confusion.
