I looked at all of those links, and did not see the proposal.

That is why I like Patrick's suggestion.  It isn't really a "new
syntax", but just a "canonical RDF".  If you have a parser that parses
RDF, it will parse this syntax.  So you can go ahead and continue doing
things the complicated way, or you can use canonical RDF when you want
to test graph isomorphism, write a bare-bones parser, and so on.
