No, and not everything in the LOD world is bNode free either. With my  
RDF storage hat on they're a pain, but as a content creator, they're  
really handy.

Arguably some intermediate concepts in the LOD world don't need/want  
stable identifiers either, but I don't really think I want to argue  
that point :)
