Ok, now I know what you meant ... but incidentally that is not N-Triples
.... for the record, below are some references to N-Triples, which to my
knowledg cannot be 'naturally encoded in XML' unless you do something like
ParseType='literal' but then just about anything could be 'naturally encoded
in XML'.
