The catch may come if (and I'm thinking this may be desirable)
the local TDL idiom requires a blank node. If so, then your
example would be excluded from a TDL interpretation. That doesn't
prevent some application from inferring what it likes about
the type and lexical form of #11, and it may turn out that there
is no need to exclude URIref nodes from the local idiom, so
you may get your cake and be able to eat it too.

It would help, though, if your example was grounded in some
particular purpose. Otherwise, it's hard to fully appreciate
what the implications may be for one treatement or the other.

Cheers,

Patrick
