Since my objective is to generate RDF from the parsed Turtle source, I need guidance on whether to implement Collections (test 07) as a linked list of blank nodes, as suggested by the output from test 07, or by the rather nicer rdf:parseType="Collection" construct given in the RDF Primer [2].

If your parser is simply converting turtle to rdf/xml the latter is fine, I suppose. However the point of an rdf parser is to produce triples, and producing the linked list is what I'd expect.
