(for the record as no response seems to be taken as agreement)

I see no point in breaking every existing N-Quads file with a named 
graph in it.


My suggestion was:

_  <http://example/g> .

to extend existing N-Quads practice IF necessary.

[I have always found having the graph id last odd but I understand shy 
it's that way and the original naming was "s p o c" but readability of 
NQ is not a primary concern.]
