Yes, I understand that now. Thx.

For TMQL I have now:

  "http://whatever/"    # interpreted as IRI literal

  "http://whatever/" ~  # IRI literal used as subject identifier

  http://whatever/      # stand-alone IRI used as subject identifier

  mailto:rumsti at ramsti  # invalid

  <mailto:rumsti at ramsti> # stand-alone IRI as subject identifier

Is this along your thinking?
