Renato,

just a thought... I know we have a timing issue here, but maybe it is worth thinking ahead (e.g., republishing a note later) with an eye on RDF 1.1 that should be finalized sometimes in 2012. One of the few changes in RDF 1.1 is the handling of language and plain literals:

http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/rdf/raw-file/default/rdf-concepts/index.html#section-Graph-Literal

I am not sure it influences your design (frankly, I have not checked it), but it may be worth having a look whether it could.

Ivan
