I'm trying to wrap my head around the intuition for preferring "RDF 
Dataset" because, to me, the spec in question deals with individual 
graphs more than it deals with RDF Datasets (a default graph plus zero 
or more named graphs). But From Andy and Chime's preferences, I'm 
guessing I'm just not looking at it the right way, so can anyone help me 
out?

thanks,
Lee
