But to take this back to my original suggestion does this apply to quads? My
understanding from Andy is that they are used by RDFStore and a number of
RSS processors, and from Jeremy that although Jena 2 does not have a quads
API it does actually use a quad data structure "under the hood". So although
they are non-standard at the moment, people are using them, so should we
really rule them out?

I'd be interested in feedback here from Eric Miller and David Karger also?

thanks

Mark
