with reference to your comment

archived as pfps-09, I am writing to find out whether the following 
response would be acceptable. If so, I will propose that the WG 
accept your comment with this resolution.

  As you know, there have been extensive modifications to the 
datatyping semantics since your comment was written.

The current editor's draft 
now contains an account of datatyping which defines interpretations 
relative to functions (called datatype maps) from URIrefs to 
datatypes. This provides a way to have a URIref be a 'name' of a 
datatype while not including the name as part of the definition of 
the datatype itself. As the text notes, datatypes are first-class 
individuals which can  be subject to identity reasoning in semantic 
extensions (such as OWL).

Please reply to this message, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org, 
indicating whether this response adequately addresses your comment.
