Really? Other serialisations do that?

Skolemisation *changes* the data. It changes it in such a way that
propositions continue to make sense in the same circumstances.

Sure, it is useful to be able to transform data to an equisatisfiable
skolem form just as it is useful to transform and change data in other

Minting URIs, skolem constants or otherwise changes the data.

Changing the data is not the business of (de)serialisation.
