As the computer science-y guy I sometimes am, I desire and demand no

I guess that sums it up. My current implementation keeps the original 
namespace and local names around in the resource classes in case they 
are needed later, but that's starting to become annoying and goes beyond 
RDF. I suppose syntactic round-tripping goes beyond RDF as well.
