yes, except that skolemization using .well-konwn URLs is ugly, broken, and should
never have made it into RDF1.1 spec. It breaks linked data clients that need to analyse the
full uri for .wellknown urls before deciding wether to follow them. it would be better to have coined bnode URNs of some form. I made a suggestion along those lines at some point.
