Furthermore,
I suggest that there be no more distinction between
 triple(resource,resource,resource) and triple(resource,resource,litteral)
but that RDF looking like

 <rdf:Description about="http://somewhere.org/something">
   <s:prop> This is a litteral </s:prop>
 </rdf:Description>

be translated something like

triple( s:prop, http://somewhere.com/something, thisfile.rdf#genid1 )

where "thisfile.rdf#genid1" whould have "This is a litteral" as CONTENT...
which surely would raise some implementation issues left to discuss!
Though, that looks sound to me.

 any reactions
