It would be nice if the NTriples and Turtle grammars were aligned.
AFAICT, NTriples is only defined in the RDF Test Cases document
http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-testcases/#ntrip_grammar
and that grammar allows only US-ASCII characters (not Unicode), bnodes
cannot contain periods, hyphens or underscores, and a URI reference
cannot be empty, such as <>.  There may be other mismatches as well --
those were just some that I noticed.

Is the WG already planning to address this?  I could not tell from
looking at
http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/wiki/Documents

Thanks!
