I have tried that in euler and it actually works fine for all 492 tests
http://eulersharp.sourceforge.net/2003/03swap/etc1.n3
http://eulersharp.sourceforge.net/2003/03swap/etc2.n3
http://eulersharp.sourceforge.net/2003/03swap/etc3.n3

The object of the triple in
http://www.w3.org/2000/10/swap/test/syntax/embedded-dot-in-qname.n3
is foo:sushi.food

and the object of the triple in
http://www.w3.org/2000/10/swap/test/syntax/trailing-dot-in-qname.n3
is foo:sushi

(almost finished my sententence with trailing dot :))
