Hello

Any reason why bindings in the DESCRIBE clause using expressions is not permitted in SPARQL 1.1, when they are permitted in the SELECT clause?

Compare [11] and [9] in:
http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-query/#sparqlGrammar

Example: Describe the first iri that is well defined, using the COALESCE function.

This could be done using BIND [62], but a SPARQL user would expect syntax to be consistent.

Sincerely,
Peter Waher
