To make Neil's short story long, negative arcs are a Netscape hack to
hide arcs from one datasource inside a composite ds. That is all they're
supposed to do, and that's roughly working.
They don't have a conceptual equivalent in the RDF specs, and thus not
in RDF/XML, and are not serialized.
Not really a long story, but with a bit more context still.
