Thinking ahead here a bit, would it be possible for the implementors  
of such things to define an IRI representing the logic here? In this  
case, I'd like an IRI I could use with sd:feature for "if you get a  
bNode ID out in SPARQL results, then you can reuse that ID in <_:$id>  
until you do an update on the graph". Obviously this is outside the  
scope of the WG, but think it would be great to have such things  
earlier rather than later when it comes to explaining the benefits of  
service descriptions.

thanks,
