Missunderstanding, try to explain it: Developers creating apps. these
apps associate users with content in their own graphs therefore a
BNode with the necessary data of a user has to be stored in the app
graph. Methods have to be implemented to retrieve users and associate
them with the system graph users. This procedure is error-prone.

Therefore I suggest not to use Bnodes as default option because it
makes the live a lot easier for the developers.
