Just re-forwarding this to archive it by tracker (maybe I should have added the tracker comment to the subject...)

(Tracker, this belongs to ISSUE-16)

> For collections, i.e. linked lists, a special processing mode is, of course, needed  at least I can't come up with any better idea.
> 3. On @typeof vs. @resource: I have not checked possible side effects w.r.t. the spec, but I would consider @typeof more intuitive, as both @typeof in normal RDFa and @typeof in your "collection processing" mode generate bnodes.
