I guess it is interesting, but not the most common case. Anyway, if the
graph URI can be manipulated directly we are very close to standard HTTP
semantics, so that should be easy to specify. 

The other case would be more complicated, but generally applicable; also
if the graph URI also can be manipulated directly.
