RDF-ISSUE-96 (XS/OWL2 datatypes): XML Schema and OWL2 custom datatypes [RDF Concepts]

http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/track/issues/96

Raised by: Richard Cyganiak
On product: RDF Concepts

Should RDF Concepts link to the SWBP Note on XML Schema Datatypes in OWL and RDF?
http://www.w3.org/TR/swbp-xsch-datatypes/

And also to the OWL2 feature for defining custom datatypes?
http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-syntax/#Datatype_Definitions

This was originally raised by Richard Smith:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-comments/2012Aug/0071.html

And updated here:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-comments/2012Sep/0005.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-comments/2012Sep/0007.html

A proposal with some support was made here:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-comments/2012Sep/0026.html

[[
Note: The Web Ontology Language [OWL2] offers [facilities for formally defining custom datatypes](http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-syntax/#Datatype_Definitions) that can be used with RDF. However, RDF implementations are not required to support these facilities.
]]

But this doesn't cover the SWBP Note yet.

An open question is whether the SWBP Note, which dates from 2006, still reflects best practice.
