Nigel,

Why didn't you use RDF XML syntax?

Joseki encodes an operation or the results into an RDF based message then
transmits that message.  It currently use N-Triples because this way needs
to have a way of encoding an arbitrary graph structure (but with lose of the
language tags).  Its too verbose as a long term solution.

Absolutely - we do something like this without our RDF implementation and it
works quite nicely.

and use XML syntax for the triples - but not necessarily RDF XML syntax 

and please fix the documentation - it presents an unnecessary obstacle to
understanding the concept

What about using HTTP for this?  GET for queries, POST for add, PUT for
replace, DELETE for deletion.  This way you can identify your triples
with URIs too; yummy goodness.
