I just added these test cases and I was wondering whether the 1 in the
graph should not be "1"^^xsd:integer. Isn't it a SPARQL specific way
of writing 1 as shortcu for "1"^^xsd:integer or is that also in
Turtle? Also, is a pure RDFS systems (without any additional datatype
support) required to read any datatype? I imagine most systems will
happily read properly typed literals and if 1 is a Turtle abbreviation
for "1"^^xsd:integer, then it should be fine I guess, but I am not
sure whether they MUST anything of the form "..."^^URI.
