Ah. Good point. Perhaps we should have said this explicitly. To 
be honest, I don't think I ever noticed the different 
terminologies here. We took over the terminology 
"lexical-to-value mapping" from the earlier 2004 RDF specs 
without change, and nobody in the intervening decade seems to 
have noted the slight disparity with the XSD terminology.
