Ok. I have for now added the content to two new sections in RDF Concepts:

5.1 The XML Schema Built-in Datatypes
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/rdf/raw-file/default/rdf-concepts/index.html#xsd-datatypes

5.3 Datatype Maps
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/rdf/raw-file/default/rdf-concepts/index.html#datatype-maps

Best,
Richard
