Hi there,

A bit late but I think this was not discussed here.

Why is the datatype of an occurrence / variant not a topic? IMO the
URI that is used to identify the datatype can be used as subject

So, I'm curious why the datatype was modeled as simple URI and not as
topic with the subject identifier <URI>.

Thanks and best regards,
