I put that into the 3 October draft, but I didn't really understand 
why it was needed.

Now I am confused. I thought that the usage of 'URI' in the MT 
document was correct. Which of the following are URIs, can anyone 
give me some insight?

rdf:type

aaa

Pat (that's my signature, not a URI)

PS. Aaron, would it be OK if I just used the N-triples term 'uriref' 
for the node labels? I don't want to proliferate names unnecessarily. 
Or, I could consistently refer to 'URI labels' in the text, after 
explaining that this means, using Graham's wording.
