That works for me.

Another way of expressing it might be:

This behaviour is only specified for resources which belong to an RDF Graph Store. URIs identifying other RDF graph content outside of the Graph Store may have other semantics or behaviour.

Note: small "may" is deliberate.

I'm fine with Sandro's text though.
