Personally, I don't see any reason to make them disjoint. Plain literals
without a language tag look just like xsd:strings to me.

However, the comments from the XML Schema people that xsd:decimal and
xsd:float are disjoint in some sense, leads towards making plain literals
and xsd:strings disjoint.
