Re: Re 2: PROPOSAL to close ISSUE-37: Clarifying bnode explanation

How about:

After processing, the following triples will be generated:

  _:john foaf:mbox <> .
  _:sue foaf:mbox <> .
  _:john foaf:knows _:sue .

The blank node identifiers ("_:john" and "_:sue") are arbitrary and
implementations are not required to maintain the same identifiers as
occur in the RDFa markup. The above data could have equivalently been
represented as:

  _:a foaf:mbox <> .
  _:b foaf:mbox <> .
  _:a foaf:knows _:b .

For clarity, this document retains blank node identifiers in examples,
but developers must not rely on RDFa implementations returning
identifiers that are consistent with the RDFa markup.
