    FWIW, I've implemented two approaches to incorporating datatypes into RDF 
    inference processes.  The software is not yet documented or released (but 
    will be soon, I hope).  Some notes are at [1].
    - one is based on ideas from Ian's paper.  All test cases from [1] have 
    been passed (except that I take a different approach to cardinality 
    - the other is based on adding a "variable binding modifier" to 
    conventional Horn-like rule.
    So far, my intuition is that Ian's GeneralRestriction class approach 
    integrates more smoothly with general RDF -- the datatypes can be built 
    into the software, and accessed/used within the RDF syntactic 
    framework.  I've yet to see how this plays out in a real application.
