It has no status at all. Forget about this example. Its only purpose is 
to illustrate an issue.

Absolutely not. The current situation is that "complex" annotations in 
the sense I have explained are not possible so there is no reason to 
have such an example.

We come back to the original purpose of my email when I made up this 
example. Intuitively, I could only think of this "named graph" solution 
to fulfill this use case but I asked the SW Coordination Group if there 
were other ways the WG could not think about since the "named graph" 
does not bring satisfaction.

Yes, we know that.

The purpose of writing an email to the SW CG was exactly to ask for help 
if there is not a 3rd way I cannot think about yet.
I think the minutes of the last F2F meeting of the WG summarize well all 
this discussion.
Best regards.
