It is specifically intended when the machine-readable value is different from a human readable format. This would imply to me that doing a lexical matching over a larger set of XSD datatypes would be appropriate, but it's not called out explicitly.

My strong feeling is that you shouldn't sniff datatypes based on the content of the value attribute -- it's too magic. But not giving the value a language would be good.
