The family of RDF specs (SPARQL, RDFS, OWL, etc) rely on the RDF
abstract model for equivalence. This mandates no normalization in
equality of IRIs http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf11-concepts/#dfn-iri-equality
or literals http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf11-concepts/#dfn-literal-term-equality .

Literals SHOULD be in NFC, but there's no normalization implied if
they're not http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf11-concepts/#dfn-lexical-form .

The LDP WG believes that this resolves i18n-ISSUE-409 without the need
for further edits. Steven Atkin, as the originator of this comment,
can you confirm?
