I believe that the dropping of the requirement that the value space of a
datatype be a subset of LV makes a noticeable change to OWL entailments.

In particular, 

	xsd:string rdfs:subClassOf rdfs:Literal .

would no longer be valid (true in all OWL interpretations) in the
RDFS-compatible semantics for OWL.
