Actually leading digits in the local name part are perfectly legal in 
Turtle as currently defined and should be allowed by any parser that 
follows the CR document [1].

The Team Submission version did indeed disallow leading digits but that 
was changed by the working group quite some time ago. Jena, for example, 
has implemented the CR version for a while.
