Dear Giovanni,

The RDF version of CRM 5.0.1 so far finds the agreement of the whole Group.
See http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/official_release_cidoc.html,
3rd item:
http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/rdfs/cidoc_crm_v5.0.1.rdfs

You can take this as a CRM comaptible form. Primitive Types are represented as rdf literals.

The OWL version version http://www8.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/IMMD8/Services/cidoc-crm/erlangen-crm_090330_5_0_1.owl
is still debated with respect to the representation of time and other primitive values,
but it links explicitly to xsd:dateTime.

Best,

Martin
