More comments - great!

The latter is the syntax currently.  There is no distinction between function 
calls and casting any more.

The example in 11.1 is currently:

PREFIX a:      <http://www.w3.org/2000/10/annotation-ns#>
PREFIX dc:     <http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/>
PREFIX xsd:    <http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#>

SELECT ?annot
WHERE { ?annot  a:annotates  <http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-query/> .
         ?annot  dc:created   ?date .
         FILTER xsd:dateTime(?date) < xsd:dateTime("2005-01-01T00:00Z") }

(Eric - isn't that constant dateTime in need of the seconds? I didn't think they 
were optional

   FILTER xsd:dateTime(?date) < "2005-01-01T00:00:00Z"^^xsd:dateTime


Bryan - would it be possible to send comments relative to the editor's draft? 
That reflects changes made since the working draft including the syntax changes. 
We're racing to get a draft in preparation for Last Call and there have been 
quite a few changes (face-to-face meetings tend to result in a cascade of things 
to do).

Editors' draft:
