There is an issue

   http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfms-graph

which contains a reference to

   http://www.mailbase.ac.uk/lists/rdf-dev/1999-04/0001.html

where the duplicate property issue was raised.

Do we have multiple issues here really.  One is whether a parser is allowed to 
spit out duplicate triples.  The other is an entailment, that a model with 
duplicte triples is equivalent to one without the duplicates.  I'm not sure 
which of these your test cases address.

Do you think all your test cases fit under rdfms-graph, or do you need a new 
location for this one?
