If any change is made, then I would (without thinking through all implications)

- drop untyped literals
- still allow the short syntax in Turtle etc, mapping to xsd:string
- introduce new datatypes for language tagged values, e.g. rdf:string-en, rdf:string-en-US

I think untyped literals just complicate code everywhere, even in ontology standards like
SKOS where some constraints explicitly require untyped literals, and not xsd:strings.
