Ahh, but what good is an automated test suite if some of the tests
aren't automated? :)

We should support whatever the implementations produce - if an
implementation produces the proper RDF/XML, we add it to the test suite
just so that implementer doesn't have to go through the pain of
hand-checking XML Literals... which is the one thing you don't want to
check by hand.

The idea isn't to be exhaustive - it's to support the implementations.
