Not exactly. I found that out, and that is fine for the visual
representation. But the generated XML/RDF will spell
out the exact content of the graph, with rdf:type, etc. Instead, I
would simply like to have


and I did not find a way to force the export doing that.

Great! That is what I was looking for. Thank you!
