RDF-ISSUE-76 (empty-lexical-space): RDF Semantics and RDF Concepts disagree on definition of datatypes

http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/track/issues/76

Raised by: Richard Cyganiak
On product: 

RDF Semantics requires lexical space and value space of datatypes to be non-empty:
http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-mt/#dtype_interp

RDF Concepts (and XSD 1.0 and 1.1) express no such restriction.

As RDF Concepts seems to be the normative reference here, this should be considered a buglet in RDF Semantics.

Related: RDF Semantics has a list of terms that it imports from RDF Concepts. This list should include “datatype” and related terms from the normative Datatypes section in RDF Concepts.
