The first should read "There is a resource (which I'm not supplying an
global identifier for right here), an Instance, and it has an identifier
that's a URI."
"_:bnode1" is an identifier, it's just a scoped identifier (limited to
the current dataset / file). Think of it as like a file:/// or a
http://localhost/ URI; very useful for internal processes and
processing, but not to be shown in public.
