It is likely that DERI will formally object to the resolution to allow blank nodes as graph names. It's not required to fulfil RDF-WG's charter, throws RDF and SPARQL out of alignment, and has significant implementation costs. This is something for a future N3 working group, not something that should be added at last minute before LC.

We shouldn't try to remove this from the LC2 document yet, as the last word may not have been said on this.

This would put the application programmer in charge of using native or canonical representations of numbers and booleans, and eliminates any round-tripping issues. If expanding with useNativeTypes=true, values with a numeric or boolean datatype but a string representation would be converted to JSON numbers or booleans, including xsd:decimal. If set to false, native types would be transformed back to either xsd:boolean or xsd:double values. Of course, we may want to tweak this some more.
