Hi Pat, hi Peter,

I have an action to ask you whether you have any objections to moving the following items from RDF Semantics to RDF Concepts (while changing normative references between the specs as appropriate):

* the definition of “datatype map”
* the definition of the XSD datatype map
* the list of suitable XSD datatypes
* the paragraph that explains why some types are unsuitable

The rationale is that

a) the concept of a datatype map would be rather helpful to tie down a few loose ends in RDF Concepts,
b) implementation guidance like that provided by the XSD type list is more at home in RDF Concepts,
c) the details of all built-in datatypes (rdf:XMLLiteral and xsd:xxx) would then be defined in the same place.

Any objections?

Best,
Richard
