I am surprised to see that the ".well-known" prefix for skolemized
bnodes is currently "genid":
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/rdf/raw-file/default/rdf-concepts/index.html#section-skolemization
I think "bnode" or "blanknode" would be much more suggestive of its
purpose, and therefore more helpful to the community.  Many (most?)
instance URIs are generated anyway, so calling it a "genid" isn't saying
much.

I suggest changing "genid" to "bnode" or "blanknode".
