I have to send my regrets today I'm afraid, but here are my thoughts on
the issue...

I think this issue is fairly non-contraversial. RDFa 1.0 and 1.1 both
do/should require that XML literals are generated when the datatype
URI is <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#XMLLiteral>.
However, the RDFa 1.0 rec was a little ambiguous as to whether this
only happened if the @datatype CURIE was literally "rdf:XMLLiteral", or
whether "xyz:XMLLiteral" also worked assuming that "xyz" was
appropriately bound.

The RDFa 1.0 test suite makes it clear that "xyz" or anything else you
like should work. But we probably need to clarify in the 1.1 spec that
it's the URI you expand the datatype out to that matters, and not the
CURIE/token found in the datatype attribute.
