I have several comments about the requirement that the lexical string of RDF
literals be in Normal Form C.

1/ Why is this restriction still in RDF Concepts?  The restriction that
   URI references be in Normal Form C was removed, why not this one?

2/ It appears to me that the result of parsing an RDF/XML document may not
   be a valid RDF graph, as literals may not be in Normal Form C.  It this
   the case?

3/ It appears to me that RDF literals are not compatible with XML Schema
   strings, as XML Schema strings do not have to be normalized.  Why is
   this the case?
