I read it as for SPARQL Update and nothing else :-)

The query model is embedded in global naming via URIs and in AWWW so 
it's a bit out of scope to make changes :-)

There is a big difference with update - the server can now be 
responsible for the current, definitive set of data for the graph, 
primarily for URIs within it's part of the global namespace but we have 
to think through the implications for updates to graphs named by other
