I'm fine with publishing them as FPWD. However, I'm not convinced that
standardizing these variations or conventions as separate formats is a good
idea. An alternative would be to add a profile media type parameter to
Turtle (which should still be possible because it would be optional) and

So, an N-Quads file could be served as follows:

Content-Type: application/trig;

We do something similar in JSON-LD to signal/request
expanded/compacted/flattened documents.
