I have a small question: "Is it allowed to have a resource ID that is syntactically equal to a
literal?". I know that some parsers have no problem with it as they internally know (See RDF API)
the type associated with "TVE". Therefore they see a resource TVE and a literal TVE as 2 different
things.

E.g.

<s:Person rdf:ID="TVE">
        <s:initials> TVE </s:initials>
        <s:firstName> Tom </s:firstName>
        <s:lastName> Van Eetvelde </s:lastName>
</s:Person>
