They use Ntriples NOTATION to describe RDF graphs. The graph is 
normative, the Ntriples is not. The documents are quite clear and 
explicit about this.  Other RDF documents use RDF/XML, which is 
normative and has an exact syntax specification but has the 
disadvantage, like most XML, of being virtually unreadable.
