"""
I'm not clear how to express S12 in OWL, should this be intended. One can use
rdfs:Literal as the range, which would also contain all typed literals. One can
use xsd:string, which has at least a value space equivalent to the set of plain
literals, but this would require to have labels of the form "Hello
World!"^^xsd:string.

Note: Currently, there is some ongoing work (by the OWL and the RIF working
groups) on specifying a new data type "rdf:text", which denotes the set of all
internationalized plain tags. But, AFAIU, this datatype will /not/ contain those
plain literals having /no/ language tag. Here is some text, which is currently
under development (so be careful, it's nothing official):
