In out of band comm, Gavin clarified that he'd like an *additional* example. I've added
[[
@prefix : <http://example.org/stats> .
<http://somecountry.example/census2007>
    :censusYear 2007 ;      # xsd:integer
    :birthRate 13.5 ;       # xsd:decimal
    :gdpDollars 14074.2E9 ; # xsd:double
    :isLandlocked false .   # xsd:boolean
]]
to the bottom of #abbrevC (though it could be used for any of the choices).
