As an implementer: I would expect the DESCRIBE to run against the  
dataset specified by the FROM/FROM NAMED, not just the contributing  
graphs, and certainly not the whole store. As to what the  
implementation should do with the named/default dichotomy... well,  
that'll be implementation-defined.
