Oh -
I would like to understand this better - are any of your rdf lc issues
particularly pertinent?

rdfs:Literal does not feel much like a datatype to me because it does not
have a lexical-to-value mapping (well I guess it has a relation between
lexical forms and values, but it is many-to-many).

I guess this one will best be dealt with during last call.

I am happy to re-raise it as a last call issue.
