That text appears in an informative section of the document only (all  
the examples are marked as informative), so
there is no implication whatever that posting SPARQL syntax docs is  
"a bad thing".

There are several features or aspects of several examples that are  
not necessarily specified but are given so as to
make the examples more realistic, or more reflective of best  
practice, etc. None of those are discussed explicitly
because they are not germane to the specification normative sections.

Cheers,
Kendall
