Ah. In that case: I intend to file a formal objection if this resolution, which came as an utter surprise to me, is not overturned.

I will join a call if this topic is on the agenda and I can make the time slot. (Lots of travel and non-negotiable meetings recently.)

We shouldn't try to remove this from the LC2 document yet, as the last word may not have been said on this.

>>> The assumption is that, prior to PR, we will resolve the newly introduced useNativeTypes issue by moving the flag from fromRdf to expand, with a pass-through from other algorithms. This would put the application programmer in charge of using native or canonical representations of numbers and booleans, and eliminates any round-tripping issues. If expanding with useNativeTypes=true, values with a numeric or boolean datatype but a string representation would be converted to JSON numbers or booleans, including xsd:decimal. If set to false, native types would be transformed back to either xsd:boolean or xsd:double values. Of course, we may want to tweak this some more.
