SPARQL property paths (http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-property-paths/) could solve this problem.

I also think we should allow the use of controlled vocabularies to express motivation.

For example, if you are interested in Editing, then you might also want to also retrieve “Updating”, “Correcting”, “Deleting” and so forth. Or Linking to include Referencing and Citing.
