If the input is outside the domain of the transformation, there will
*not* be a mapping to anything (much less an RDF graph), and
consequently GRDDL (i.e., it's normative mechanisms: the green boxes)
will no longer apply.

If non-RDF is produced, GRDDL will also not apply as it would not have
computed a GRDDL result (an RDF graph).
