An important point indeed!

Hierarchies of containers are necessary in my opinion, but I can't see a good reason not to allow (MAY) a graph structure that would map cleanly to the RDF model. 

URIs are hierarchical, and so are file systems, but links work in both systems, making graphs. 

Does anyone have a good argument against containers within containers (I hope not).
