Position of the Web Ontology Working Group on the XML Literal design

 From an Webont perspective there were serious problems with the LC1
design of XML literals, as indicated by the official comments from
Webont and the individual comments from Patel-Scheider. The new XML
literal design, as specified in the current WDs, appears to Webont to
be a well-motivated rational design choice in a space of conflicting
requirements [1]. The arguments against the alternatives proposed by
I18N are compelling (see e.g. [2]).  The current post-LC design works
for OWL and is our preferred design in the context of the options
currently on the table.
