If we do (3), I want to reintroduce the idea of getGraph in at least
the abstract WSDL interface (or in a separate interface), since my
willingness to drop getGraph was tied to the CONSTRUCT * alternative.

I don't recall what our WSDL sketch said about getGraph, and I can't
find the WSDL sketch in our archives...

(And setting aside the getGraph dependency, I agree about dropping
"CONSTRUCT *".)
