Re: ISSUE-94 (n-ary constucts and RDF): Problem with roundtripping when going from functional-style syntax into RDF and back

So

DatatypeProperty(<http://example.com/9>)
Individual(f:Dad type(owl:Thing) value(<http://example.com/9> "nine"))

isn't round-trippable. However I never really thought of that as a  
round trip issue as much as a "trip" issue. You can't even get it in  
to RDF/XML never mind get it back in the same form.
