The problem is that both the OWL and RIF are in dormant state. What this means is that if XSD Datatypes become a standard, they will both wake up, change the references in their document, maybe handle some errors, publish an edited document, and then the groups will be closed...

I am not sure that what you propose is editorial only in terms of the document. If it is not, I do no think it is that simple...

David or Guus, it would be a good idea to contact officially the RIF and OWL WG chairs on this. Cc it to the Coordination Group...
