3.1 Additional RDFa Processing Rules includes this:

a plain literal must be generated with the associated language of the node,

I don't remember the discussion (was there any?) where the language bit was
discussed. but considering that the content of @datetime is most likely
machine readable data (even if not one of the xsd types), I'm not sure it
would be localized. My gut feeling is that it should just be a plain
literal with no language. Is there a reason here to have a language?

the next step for @value for example does not include such language
