Can do - see below for some samples of UC 2.2.  Its just running the RDF/XML
through jena.rdfcopy then neatening a touch: I've attached some examples:
the pretty N3 writer, the plain one (no nested bNodes) and q-triples
(N-Triples-like but with prefixing for qnames).  It is what ever makes it
clearest for the reader.  

Shows up the parse error in 2.3 as well (ObjectName and /objectName).

There is the matter that only RDF/XML is an official syntax for RDF;
N-triples is defined by RDF-core as a testing syntax.

N3-TRIPLES: adding a prefix of http://triumph.info/part/ and
http://triumph.info/2004/ would compact it more.
