Err, in context we have:

Sure - but do I take it you are advocating this ability?  No point 
raising issues about things no one is advocating.  The issue is not 
SELECT (_:b ...) but the underlying need?

I thought that would be done as part of TF-LIB as we have discussed 
generators for RDF terms before :  BNODE(), URI() and LITERAL().  Inline 
syntax _:b1 is the worst of all worlds because it has different meaning 
in different places.
