Great, I think this is really helpful.

A couple of small comments for your consideration:

(1) eoln -- I think it might be better to define this in a single network 
transfer format, rather than trying to capture local system conventions:  I 
would recommend the CR LF convention per MIME text/plain.  Otherwise, I 
would expect to encounter interoperability hiccups if different eoln 
conventions are used in an N-triples repository.  (This doesn't prevent 
software from using local newline conventions.)

(2) URIs containing '<' -- per RFC 2396, sections 2.4.3 and appendix A, '<' 
is not allowed within a URI (must be escaped) so I think this is a non-issue.
