A while back, AndyS and some others settled on a scheme defining
ResultSets [1]. This seems like work we can use for expressing the
expected results for a given query.

RDF Query and Rules Framework [2] leans on this schema and I've
mostly* adopted this for the Algae tests. The Optional2 test [3],
which is already in the test cases, looks like this as a table:

+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+
|                        n|                        d|                        e|                        f|                        g|
|-------------------------|-------------------------|-------------------------|-------------------------|-------------------------|
| <http://example.org/n#A>|                     NULL|                     NULL|                     NULL|                     NULL|
|<http://example.org/n#A2>|                     NULL|                     NULL|                     NULL|                     NULL|
|<http://example.org/n#A3>|<http://example.org/n#D3>|<http://example.org/n#E3>|<http://example.org/n#F3>|                     NULL|
|<http://example.org/n#A4>|<http://example.org/n#D4>|<http://example.org/n#E4>|<http://example.org/n#F4>|<http://example.org/n#F4>|
+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+

and this as a ResultSet:

* I've substituted rs:nonValue** "NULL" for rs:value rs:undef in
  order to distinguish the case where I got no bindings from the
  case where I got a binding to the resource rs:undef.

** In analogous presumption, I plan to introduce foaf:UnPerson
   without Danbri's consent.
