I don't follow you at all. The spec doesn't say to not compute the 
square root
of your IP address either. If that floats your boat, you're free to do 
it.
But when you do, the answer isn't a GRDDL result, any more or less
than the result of some random transformation applied to some
random document. What suggests applying any transformations
to any results?

The loop test case is already in the test cases, no? It's not yet
approved; I'm all for approving it.
