RDF-ISSUE-70 (xsd-in-rdf-concepts): RDF Concepts should mention all datatypes defined in the core specs

http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/track/issues/70

Raised by: Richard Cyganiak
On product: 

RDF Concepts defines what a Datatype is, and defines the rdf:XMLLiteral datatype in detail.

However, it doesn't even mention the fact that the RDF Model Theory defines a set of XSD-based datatypes for use with RDF. Given that Turtle, SPARQL etc have a certain amount of built-in support for some of these datatypes, this seems strange.

I think that the list of compatible XSD datatypes from RDF Model Theory should be moved or copied to RDF Concepts. There should also be a statement about conformance requirements: is support for these datatypes required or optional or what?

The section should perhaps also mention how rdf:PlainLiteral relates to RDF (it's defined as an RDF datatype, but MUST NOT be used in RDF graphs)
