I guess it depends whether you count your population by triples or  
graphs, but that seems quite high to me. The vast majority of FOAF  
data (Hi5 and LiveJournal, for example) has bnodes in it, and FOAF  
makes up the bulk of LinkedData as far as I've been able to tell.

Outside of FOAF the BBC music data, for example, has a lot of bNodes  
in it.
