I was getting tired when I wrote that.

I *do* see it as harmful in that it makes querying tricky, and indeed
not possible in SPARQL 1.0. We do have requests for query, e.g. [1].

However, I'm prepared to accept that SPARQL 1.1 will arrive quickly
enough for this to not be fatal and so would not object formally.
