That may be the case, but the Test document says:

The datatype theory of an OWL consistency checker MUST minimally support
at least xsd:integer, xsd:string from [XML Schema Datatypes].

Thus as an implementor, I can simply ignore test oneOf/004 (as it uses
datatypes which are outside those that I support) and I can get away with
not having to pass what might otherwise be an awkward test (which is fine
by me, by the way with my implementation hat on :-)
