I believe the answer will be 'no', but I just want to check: would the introduction of a new type, and the special nature of the rdf:LanguageTaggedLiteral, have any effect on the OWL 2 and RIF specs from a functional point of view?

Note that there is a plan to publish an edited recommendation for both OWL 2 and RIF when the new version of the XSD spec is published as a recommendation. At that point we can add a reference to rdf:LanguageTaggedLiteral to the RIF Datatypes[1] and the OWL 2 structural specification[2] documents (both documents explicitly list the datatypes they handle). Hm... it may not be as simple if the XSD spec comes out before the new RDF spec...
