I'm transcribing the definitions into larch
(cf http://www.w3.org/XML/9711theory/) and I got to...

"Definition: Query Variable

A variable in a query is name, used to define a graph pattern.
Variables are associated to terms in a graph by a binding."
 -- http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/rq23/#basicpatterns

That definition doesn't actually constrain the term
Query Variable at all. There's no impact, formally.

I suggest getting rid of the Definition markup and just stating
it as commentary.
