Also, correct (I think)... although, I don't think we have a test case
for this at the moment.

is the behavior of @instanceof:

1. Applies to @about or @src if either exist on the current

2. Creates a new bnode if there is no @about or @src on the current

I'm talking about the new one that was just created for the local
@instanceof. @instanceof does not inherit anything, ever.
