I thought it did.  Mainly, rdfs:Datatype is part of the rdfs 
vocabulary.  And, for example, rdfs:Datatype rdfs:subClassOf rdfs:Class, 
and xxx rdf:type rdfs:Datatype => xxx rdfs:subClassOf rdfs:Literal.  Also, 
the semantic conditions on datatypes are stated, in part, in terms of the 
RDFS semantic conditions (viz. ICEXT).
