Specifically, I recall the action to be that I post details of how CC/PP 
uses XML schema data types for literal values.  The relevant document here 
is [1] which is not a public document, but incorporates changes from 
last-call reviews.  See, for example, section [2], [3], and 
appendix C [4].

The client vocabulary schema [4] uses the XML schema datatype as the range 
of the corresponding RDF property, where the actual value is a literal 
rather than an RDF class.  In this context, the XML schema datatypes are 
presumed to be subclasses of rdfs:Literal (?).

Example of use:

   <ccpp:Attribute rdf:ID='charWidth'>
     <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">Character display width</rdfs:label>
     <rdfs:domain rdf:resource='&ns-ccpp;Component'/>
     <rdfs:range  rdf:resource='&ns-xsdt;integer'/>
     <rdfs:comment xml:lang="en">
       For character displays, the number of characters that can be
       rendered across the display.  For displays using a proportional
       font, this is the display width in typographical 'em's.

Ooops, just spotted a couple of bugs in the appendix C schema :-(
This raises a couple of questions:

What is the data type of a resource that is a DTD?
   "                                       "   XML schema?
   "                                       "   RDF schema?
