Maybe I need to see a more complete example. Are you saying that you'd 
pass something like http://example/web in the protocol parameter and 
then do:

INSERT DATA { GRAPH <http://example/web> { :a :b :c } }
   GRAPH <http://example/web> { :a :b ?c }

and not expect the 2nd operation to see the triple from the first?
