If I was the God of W3C, I'd shunt such material down to the bottom of
the page, or better still an appendix.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but containers are so feeble that you could
say the same as the spec says in an arbitrary namespace -

x:Bag rdfs:comment "yet another blank node" .

Documentation issue I reckon, get best known practices in first.

Cheers,
Danny.
