In subsequent discussion I came to adopt the same position myself.  I
retract my objection.  

On the other hand, I think if DASL simplesearch can't query against the
resource type property, it really is a failure.  So we'll need to address
at least a little bit of structure.  The smallest possible bit would be to
allow for XML elements as literals.
