I am just wondering: does RDF need to represent just integers, floats,
perhaps rationals, strings, dates, booleans, or does it need those plus the
rest of the machine dependent types (e.g. short vs. long, signed vs.
unsigned etc.) ?

It feels like RDF can be machine/binary neutral but perhaps there might be
some efficiency gained by knowing that a value is constrained to be short
vs. long?
