DTB 2nd WD - additional issues?

We discussed yesterday - over lunch I think - the various datatypes 
supported by OWL, e.g. that OWL introduces a new dataTime subtype of
xs:dataTime where the timezone is obligatory.

a) Shall we adopt this datatype as well?

b) Since such a datatype seems to be of broader interest than OWL only, 
I'd tend to suggest to OWL to go for a similar solution here as 
rdf:text, to choose a more "neutral" name, suggesting something like:

xs:TimeStamp or xs:dataTimeTZ

Opinions? Wil bring this up together with the DTB discussion this afternoon.
