That reminds me...

Are we expecting the statement:

DELETE WHERE { :foo :bar _:b1 }

to be the equivalent of:

DELETE { :foo :bar ?b } WHERE { :foo :bar ?b FILTER isBlank(?b) }

If not, then will _:b1 bind to a single blank node or all of them? Can
it bind to non-blank nodes? Is this question too hard, and we should
disallow blank nodes in DELETE templates?
