Peter -
  I would oppose moving to LC with the line above in our document --
for a lot of reasons:
  i. it implies we will release a new document during the LC period 
(bad practive and possibly outlawed by process)
  ii. it states as a WG consensus that there is a problem w/RDF 
datatyping, which was NOT in our consensus review to RDF Core and 
therefore could prompt them to issue a process objection to our LC
  iii. It does not say what happens if our "hopes" are not fulfilled

I suggest the following somewhat more process-neutral wording:


(The specifics of datatype theories used here differ slightly from 
those in the RDF semantics currently under review.  It is expected 
that these discrepancies will be resolved during last call, following 
which this document will be revised to correspond directly to RDF 
datatyping.)
