9. Specifying RDF datasets
first para, last sentence "The RDF dataset may also be specified in a
SPARQL protocol request, in which case the protocol description overrides
any description in the query itself."  This rule violates the usual
assumption about scoping, that the innermost specification of something
should prevail over specification that occur in an outer scope.  In
this case, the protocol layer is an outer scope and the query itself
is carried within the protocol, so one would expect that the protocol
could provide defaults, but that the query itself should have the final
say.
