I suppose I called it tagtriples because the user works with s,p,o
triples. The graph portion is pretty hidden away at the moment (unless
you're an administrator) so it made sense to call it triples.

Actually if I was going to include graphs in a human-writable
serialization it probably wouldn't use quads - I suspect braces around
the triples (a la trig named-graphs[1]) would be the most intuitive
way.

Actually I didn't give much thought to the name ;-)

Cheers,

Phil
