As you will see in my response to Sandro, my real concern is 
illustrated by "values" such as "hello"^^xs:integer.  If both the 
is-string and is-literal-not-string functions either return false or 
report a parse/syntax/something error, then I'm satisfied.

I don't recall right offhand what your isLiteral() function returns 
in cases such as "hello"^^xs:integer", so I can't quickly answer 
"great" or "doesn't help".
