You seem to be using rdf:value as if it were owl:sameAs, saying the
number 10 has a value which is the number 10.  That doesn't seem like
a great use of rdf:value to me, although I do see its appeal.  Am I
misunderstanding?  (I just checked over a few sources.... [1] [2]

    (this proposal appears to not have been adopted, but the
    discussion following it is interesting.)
