<triple><subject ...>subj</subject><property>...</property> <object> ... </object> </triple>

An attribute in subject/object can tell whether the content is a literal,
uriref, or a blank node. 
Cross-referencing blank nodes presents some small problem, which can be
fixed in a number of ways.
But, as I said before, a better syntax would be to use F-logic, which is
not that far from the triples, but is cleaner. (Reification and blank nodes
are easier to represent.)
