Why just integers? It would seem like it would be useful to be able to add provenance (who, when, where…) information to any property – not just integers. President:=Johnson - 1965 or hasChild :: Sarah – 2003 definedIn:=http://w3.org/sample/prelimVersion 2007-08-07

Subject: [SMW-devel] dated integer type
I have run across a concept called 'dated integer' that I propose
become a native SMW data type. As the name implies, one can associate a
number with a year:
population:=9,999 - 2005 or
homeruns:=756 - 2007-08-07.
Do others think this would be useful?
