The only other one I can find is xsd:precisionDecimal, which I've added to
the table. I believe this has been noted in the past as an at-risk feature.

There is also a new special built-in type, xsd:anyAtomicType, which is the
base type from which all atomic-valued types are derived. It's convenient
because it explicitly excludes the sequence-valued types which don't fit in
with the RDF datatype model, and might be worth mentioning in an informative
note ("Only those datatypes derived from xsd:anyAtomicType should be used in
RDF..."). Then again, it might just confuse the matter.

No -- should they be?  I don't know the process for raising issues.
