Prompted by Martin's I18N questions, I found...

"OWL tools need only implement the datatypes xsd:integer and
xsd:string."

What's an "OWL tool"? Let's specify the language
without reference to software.

In 3.1. Vocabularies and Interpretations,
please change the defintion of datatype theory
and/or Abstract OWL interpretation so that
integer and string have to be included in the
set of datatypes for every Abstract OWL interpretation.

And change OWL interpretation in 5.2. OWL Interpretations
likewise.

Then strike the "OWL tools..." bit in
section 2. Abstract Syntax.
