Sure, currently we have the problem that that the mergemap directive
is specified as follows:

   mergemap ::= %mergemap iri notation?
   notation ::= iri

If we keep a meaningful EOL (that means the mergemap directive must
not span more than one line), there is no problem to parse this, but
if we remove the meaningful EOL, we get some problems because the
optional notation may be interpreted as subject identifier.

We discussed this issue already a bit, but we didn't come to a

I like

  mergemap ::= %mergemap iri notation
  notation ::= string

Other thoughts, ideas, comments?
