Hi Bob,

thanks, we are doing our best ;)

Thanks for these pointers. These ideas all make sense, however, we are
also concerned about the implications in practice, i.e., we have to
make sure that whatever approach we pick is supported by triple
stores. I do see that your proposal of having an identifier makes
sense at a conceptual level, but in practice, does it matter if we end
up with named graphs that may only contain a single triple in some
cases? I don't think it does, but maybe I'm missing something.
