Fairly speculative, right now, but I expect that the implementation will either look for datasources within a local repository, or read them into a repository instance, we haven't created the overall scaffold for this yet. This would allow a SPARQL endpoint without any persistent repository to query from multiple "remote" datasources.

Of course, having a local repository, particularly one which has more native support for query primitives, could provide some significant performance advantages over a compliant, but simplified implementation.
