The next draft of the service description document will likely include a named graph class to go along with the property mentioned above. If the modeling in the example section[1] works for the named graphs you're hoping to describe (the named graph pointed to by the sd:namedGraph property), then the new class will probably be what you're after.

Hope that helps.
