This means that all existing N-Triples parsers are lenient in that they
process documents that are not valid N-Triples documents.  This, however, does
not make them too lenient as there is no requirement that an N-Triples
processor reject inputs that are not N-Triples documents.

This does mean that Canonical N-Triples documents are not valid N-Triples


PS:  Of course what it really means is that the grammar section of the
N-Triples document needs to be changed.
