ISSUE-304: mismatch between ref:langString and xsd:string types?

mismatch between ref:langString and xsd:string types?

Raised by:
Addison Phillips
Opened on:

In Section 7.1 you say:

The built-in RDF datatype rdf:langString has no ill-typed literals. Any syntactically legal literal with this type will denote a value in every RDF interpretation. The only ill-typed literals of type xsd:string are those containing a Unicode code point which does not match the Char production in [XML10]. Such strings cannot be written in an XML-compatible surface syntax.

It's not clear why the Unicode requirements for xsd:string do not also apply to the non-language-tag content of rdf:langString? Is it because "syntactically legal" prohibits non-XML10 characters in langString?
