I have a GUI data structure that is a pair (resource, label). The label is used for humans, the resource is used to process RDF.

If I want SPARQL to produce list of these pairs ordered by label, this is the simplest query that I can think of.

This is but a start, I will later insert more FILTERs (for faceted navigation etc.).
