The last part (triples) was my first frustration and I've definitely
run into the pain of fitting mixed content into it.  Hadn't thought
about the granular types that much, but you're right on that one too.
 Shame, really.  Wouldn't it be nice to be able to answer Rogers
original question by simply pointing at RDF and saying "anything that
fits in there" with the fit, for well, everything, being obvious....
