status of xsd:duration in OWL (and RIF and SPARQL) - ACTION-164: RDF WG


The XSD 1.1 specs are have finally achieved REC status!

There appears to have been some late work on xsd:duration, which may have made 
it suitable for use in RDF and OWL.  The RDF WG is poised to add xsd:duration 
to the recommended/permitted/approved (whatever) list of XSD datatypes for RDF.

Could the OWL WG provide *advisory* input as to whether this is a bad idea?  
Ideally, if RDF adds xsd:duration, OWL should as well, so it would be good if 
the OWL WG could determine whether the current definition of xsd:duration will 
be "added" to OWL.

If RIF and SPARQL WGs are active, they may also want to take a look at
