To do so would require that an OWL Lite or OWL DL processor include an XML
canonicalization component.  I view this as a significant unnecessary
burden on OWL Lite or OWL DL processors, and thus oppose this proposal.

I also note that the treatment of RDF XML Literals has discrepancies
between the RDF Core WG Last Call Documents.
