This is covered in section 2.7 which does show blank nodes in results. I'd 
prefer not to show the blank node in the query results this early.  The purpose 
is really to have them in the data.

So I have deleted from 2.5:
"""
No SPARQL query will be able to identify that blank node by the label used in 
the serialization.
"""
