It's not so different from Michel and Rob's approach - see Michel's email on this thread.

It's also (deliberately) somewhat limited in power - for example, you can't selectively expand relations based on presence/absence of other triples. It would be nice to have a general purpose macro language as a W3C standard, from which these simpler approaches could be defined.
