With "in RDF Graphs" changed to "in interpretations",

Based on subsequent messages in the thread, I *think* that one 
of the two iteration of "literals" in the above sentence should 
be replaced by "RDF* triples", and that "interpretations" should 
similarly be prefaced by "RDF*", and that the other "literals" 
should become "RDF literals", all of which make the fully 
corrected sentence --

    And one big disadvantage of this semantics is 
    that all RDF* triples, all blank nodes, and all 
    RDF literals will be nodes in RDF* interpretations.

But I'm not sure that's accurate.

Nor am I sure how much it matters to the ensuing or ongoing 

But, as we're in rarified air, here, and even those of us 
who have a *very* strong understanding of the subject matter 
will mis-type now and then, and every mis-type, large or 
small, leads to some misunderstanding and confusion, which 
is especially troublesome when the subject matter can 
already be quite confusing *without* such mis-types ... I'm
asking that we all take extra some care to proofread before 
sending, and to re-read our own messages to the list, to at 
least lower the time that such confusion may continue.

(And if the above does change the current conversation at 
all, maybe that can happen sooner than later.)
