Those would probably work in the SPARQL world, but I'm thinking of
SPARQL as just an interactive pseudo-TriG document.

Yes, the document could have a nearby document which tells you how to
interpret it.   But that sounds pretty awkward to me.

Do we have a licensing use case?    

TimBL's foaf file contains:

 <> cc:license <http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/>

It'd be nice to have that kind of thing survive in some usable way
through being fetched and passed on.    Here, it's important that the
subject and the fourth-column are the same.
