One can imagine various elaborations of the XML datatypes that might be 
defined as classes in OWL.  For example a postal code is a string 
(http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#string) but you could state more 
interesting things about it such as country of usage, introduction date 
and format.  Is is possible to subclass XML datatypes, directly or 
indirectly?  What is the best practice in this situation?

Thanks in advance.
