To both, it's so that there's some uniformity of behavior. I wouldn't
want to be the user of (nor the designer of test cases for) a Semantic
Web which will unpredictably match strings in graph patterns. (I'm
assuming here that users will continue to work on graphs without e.g.
D-entailment; which I think is pretty reallistic.)
