That isn't leaning the underlying graph being queried is it?  To be lcear 
there: HP does not want eaning the underlying graph as a condition for SPARQL 
and wants redundancy in the queried graph to be exposed.  See also around this 
thread:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-dawg/2006JulSep/0088.html
Services may choose to offer a lean graph if they so wish.

But I'm guessing you mean leaning your graph definition of the graph of the 
result set (and not the graph form used by the DAWG test cases).  I phrased it 
in non-graph language so as not have a dependency on either of those graph 
definitions, nor leaning of such graphs.  I think that the same as says "not 
leaning" but I'm not fully aware of all the consequences and cases that arise 
when leaning a graph formed from a result set.

(I suggest avoiding the term 'answerset' where possible because of the 
confusion with answerset programming).
