It was good to see some efforts towards test cases. Before we can 
meaningfully do this, we need to agree on the high-level vocabulary to 
be used within those test cases.

As I start to look into filling an unfinished piece in my spec 
(sh:valueType), I noticed that we should rename sh:nodeType so that it 
doesn't conflict with the term "type" in the possible variations of 
sh:valueType, sh:datatype etc. Looking at the RDF spec [1], what we call 
the node types are introduced as:

"There can be three kinds ofnodes 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf11-concepts/#dfn-node>in anRDF graph 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf11-concepts/#dfn-rdf-graph>:IRIs 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf11-concepts/#dfn-iri>,literals 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf11-concepts/#dfn-literal>, andblank nodes 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf11-concepts/#dfn-blank-node>."

Question: Does anyone object to renaming sh:nodeType to sh:nodeKind? Any 
better proposals?

Thanks
Holger
