Well, I was trying to follow various stuff and ended up in the SPARQL
document when I wasn't expecting to.  I was trying to determine the
intent of the section after 4.5 (the one labelled 3.5 RDF Triples) and
found GraphNode, which pointed off to the SPARQL spec, and didn't appear
anywhere else in the Turtle spec itself.  As this was the basis of the
triple generation stuff, I was unable to continue in determining how to
generate triples from a Turtle document.
