With respect to your comment recorded as


The RDFCore WG have resolved


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 


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.
