if the "Composite Datasets" feature is, or should eventually become,  
the subject of active discussion, it would be worthwhile for the  
proponents to explain,
1. how a mechanism like "COMPOSE GRAPH" permits more than enumerating  
the respective arguments in a "FROM" or "FROM NAMED" clause
2. how the "cohort" use case, which the document claims to be the  
primary motivation, is not supported by graph variables in subqueries.
3. why the "from all named graphs" use case motivates either an  
addition syntactic element (FROM *) or the equivalent "COMPOSE GRAPH"  
long form, when a standard designator - an iri specified as part of  
the SPARQL standard, would be sufficient.

best regards, from berlin
