Honestly it sounds a bit strange to me to simply accept that there is a
fundamental problem without trying to address it - especially considering
that the problem has been known since at least 2005 (2002?).
The other thing that worries me even more is the fact that a number of RDF
serialization formats are in the process of being standardized right now. At
least JSON-LD doesn't have this artificial restriction but that was heavily
criticized by the RDF WG and, as it seems at the moment, we will have to
introduce it.

I think there won't be a better point in time to fix this once for all.
