Not just tacitly. We explicitly discussed them, e.g.

"PROPOSED: Add the following primitive data types, without builtins 
(other than guard predicates) for subtypes of xs:string and xs:integer: 
xsd:nonPositiveInteger, xsd:positiveInteger, xsd:negativeInteger, 
xsd:long, xsd:int, xsd:short, xsd:byte, xsd:unsignedLong, 
xsd:unsignedInt, xsd:unsignedShort, xsd:unsignedByte, xsd:float, 
xsd:normalizedString, xsd:token, xsd:language, xsd:Name, xsd:NCName, xsd "

but then found it easier the phrase the final resolution as:

"RESOLVED: support all OWL datatypes in RIF except owl:rational (to be 
discussed further)"
