This option is preferred. 

And I would go so far as to remove the XMLLiterals "datatype"
since it is such an odd duck (and even more so if lang tags are
omitted from other typed literals) and revert back to the 
original idea of three kinds of literals: simple, XML, and typed.
Only the first two types of literals take lang tags.
