Aligning NTriples grammar with Turtle grammar

It would be nice if the NTriples and Turtle grammars were aligned.
AFAICT, NTriples is only defined in the RDF Test Cases document
and that grammar allows only US-ASCII characters (not Unicode), bnodes
cannot contain periods, hyphens or underscores, and a URI reference
cannot be empty, such as <>.  There may be other mismatches as well --
those were just some that I noticed.

Is the WG already planning to address this?  I could not tell from
looking at
