Not pedantic at all. Dominik  Tomaszuk took the specgen from 


and tweaked it. It is now in the hg repository here


But Domel does not really know how to tweak it further as his understanding of python is not  very deep. (And I don't have time to learn).

I would much rather the transform be in xsparql 


as there is a chance that such a transform can become a full w3c standard if we just use it, and that many tools could implement it at the w3c, and finally that it be adopted as the language of choice for writing GRDDL transforms. So if someone proposes an xsparql transform to produce the same (or better) output, then I'd be much happier to use that, and add the author to the list of contributors. We also need such a transform for the EARL ontology too btw. I think this can be a fun assignment for students.
