Hi Peter

I seem to have ended up owning this issue; and don't know what you would like 
to do.

Here's my summary:

you asked
[[
So what happened to the XML Schema datatype facets?  Are they part of RDF
datatypes?
]]

Patrick answered:
[[
Facets are not part of RDF Datatypes. 
]]

Brian answered:
[[
I don't recall the WG deciding this.
]]

Jeremy answered:
[[
we need to be careful to not suggest that xsd:int for example does
not have facets. It does; it is simply that they do not play a visible role
in RDF's use of the datatype.
]]

Options:
1: do nothing
2: add informative text (e.g. a note) reminding the reader that XS datatypes 
have facets, but they do not interact directly with RDF datatyping.

Do you have a preference, or a third possibility?

Jeremy
