I take the stance that to be in a RDF model is to be a stated or an entailed
triple.  According to this stance any interpretations outside of stated or
entailed triples are only in the conceptions of humans and are not
accessible to computer software.  This new TDL mapping between the
LexicalForm and the DataType seems to fall in this imaginary area.  But why
not just state that mapping with an actual triple? The entailable triple
would be drawn from the xsd class to the lexical value and might have the
property name "definesValue" ... see mentograph.
