Peter,

With respect to your comment recorded as

http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/20030123-issues/#pfps-09

The RDFCore WG have resolved

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2003Jul/0173.html

to accept this comment.

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

The current editor's draft 

http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/TR/WD-rdf-mt-20030117/

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.

Brian
