So would I not be (conformantly) allowed to implement update in such a 
way that I can match data retrieved from outside the graph store and use 
that to update graphs in the graph store?

I don't do that today, but I surely will in the future :) Perhaps I 
could still do that via a creative interpretation of exactly what my 
graph store consists of.

Anyway, I'm fine with this change, just still trying to understand it.
