It does not fix technically. But there is an inconsistency in the language. It is
perfectly fine to say

<a> <b> [ <c> <d> ] .

ie, having the [ ... ] syntax defining a blank node with some triples, if I take this
out of the object position

[ <c> <d> ] .

then this is no longer valid. I must admit that was one of the most frequent error I
made in my early Turtle days...
