I am not sure what it means to say that a datatype is not normative, but if it in any way contradicts these statements then we should not do it. These are essential to the operation of the semantics. My understanding about what non-normative means here is that RDF engines are not obliged to recognize these IRIs, and that does not contradict the above at all.
