Does this include owl:rational? Or only the additional string types?  
I.e., literally *xsd* or types in general. If types in general then I  
think it's futile since new types are coming down the line (i.e.,  
quantity types).

If the latter, why not support them? Esp. since they are all  
definable anyway (being, essentially, range restrictions).

Cheers,
Bijan.
