We've faced the problem of formulating SPARQL queries using alphanumeric identifiers, and have developed software to make queries using the labels :

> Hi,

> On last week's call I was tasked with contacting Chris and Alan
> regarding the form of the Relations Ontology URIs. There was some
> concern that the current text fragment (e.g. part_of) would be replaced
> with a semantic free identifier (e.g. RO_0000001). They confirmed this
> is the case. The discussion stemmed from concern that our Atlas Triples
> use predicates which are also in this form and there was a concern that
> it makes querying harder. Alan Ruttenberg had the following useful
> suggestion (I would also be keen to know if this resolves the concerns
> on the call or if I missed something more fundamental)
> 
> for sparql they can write:
> 
> prefix part_of:<http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/RO_0000000>
> 
> then query:
> 
> ?a part_of: ?b
> 
> SPARQL processors should allow something like:
> 
> @include_prefixes<http://foo.org/ro_prefixes.txt>
