Proposal for adding new datatypes from XSD 1.1 (ISSUE-66)

Dear all,

XSD 1.1 has added a number of new datatypes, and revised some of the existing ones. XSD 1.1 is now a W3C Recommendation. ISSUE-66 asks the question whether to add the new types to the list of XSD types allowed in RDF.

Alex has previously analysed the changes in XSD 1.1 from an RDF point of view:

I fully concur with his findings and recommendations, and hence propose:

PROPOSAL: Resolve ISSUE-66 by adding xsd:duration, xsd:dayTimeDuration, xsd:yearMonthDuration and xsd:dateTimeStamp to the table of allowed XSD types in RDF Concepts ED Section 5.1

(RDF Semantics has a redundant list of the same types; this also needs to be changed accordingly, or removed in favour of normatively referencing RDF Concepts.)
