Use case, or noose case😉?

Do you need to have "named" blank nodes that cross graph boundaries, and
can't readily use the 1.1 well known genid trick?

If not, it might be simpler just to stick a name attribute in the RDF/XML
root element, store each graph in a separate file, collecting the files in
a tarball or the like? That would allow unmodified software to work with
the individual graphs.

If needs be you could have an additional file defining the dataset, which
could be used as the starting document for xsl processing.
