None of these are show stoppers, but I'd like to understand....

- Why are we using application/trig instead of text/trig (since Turtle 
is text/turtle)   (I guess maybe we decided the IETF process was too 
difficult with the text tree?  Or it's too annoying to include the 
charset="utf-8" ever time?)

- What is the justification for grammar note 9?   I see Turtle has the 
same problem.   Why can't we just say "@prefix" and "@base" are language 
tags when they occur as such in the grammar?    Of course it would have 
to be special cased with traditional parser generators, but it doesn't 
seem like it'd be hard.  (I guess we went back on forth on this and gave 
up in disgust?)

- is it a bug that the grammar says (blankNodePropertyList | collection) 
can preceed { } but not if GRAPH is used?  How about getting rid of 
triples2 and instead change labelOrSubject to include alternatives 
blankNodePropertyList and collection?    I don't have a working 
grammar-driven-parser right now, so maybe I'm doing that wrong in my head.
