Well that is N3.

$ echo " { <foo> a <bar> . } :published 2012-03-04 ." | cwm --quiet
     @prefix : <> .
    {
        :foo     a :bar .
        
        }     <#published> "2012-03-04"^^<http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#date> .
    
$ 

works for me 

Standardizing N3 is I think beyond the scope of David’s plea o make rdf more approachable.  But is a good idea also.
