TCs 107-109 have been written to match what I believe the current
processing rules state. librdfa was updated and the triples that are in
the SPARQL for TC107-109 is what I got... however, I don't think this
was our intent.

The issue has to do with step #10 of the processing rules - the list of
incomplete triples being completed only if a new subject is found. This
hurts the use case that was the main motivator for not "garbage
collecting" bnodes: "What happens if somebody wants to build their
triples up one-by-one?".

So this case:

<div about="#me">I know
   <div rel="foaf:knows"></div>

wouldn't generate a triple until you did this:

<div about="#me">I know
   <div rel="foaf:knows">
      <div rel="foaf:knows"></div>

Which is fine, I guess - but I thought we wanted both to generate triples?
