The usability of anonymous nodes can be overrated as they don't have a 
URI serving as a global unique identifier (and potentialy locator) for 

Using "predications linking them to suitable subject-indicating URIs" 
sounds cumbersome. Using actual resources provides this functionality in 
a more uniform way. Then again, I don't consider anonymous nodes to be 
resources; based on my rather quick interpretation of LBase [1], they 
can be classified under the "quantified formula" mechanisms.
