says: "blank nodes do not denote specific resources".  I don't think
that is quite correct, since a blank node *does* denote a specific
resource.  It just doesn't give that resource a name that is meaningful
outside the graph.  I suggest rewording this as "blank nodes do not have
stable names that can be referenced outside of the graph".
