But that design refers to 'named graphs', which already introduces new semantics (that is, semantics which goes beyond that defined in the RDF specs.) i would be delighted if we could agree to build named graph semantics into the RDF semantics. If that is what you are suggesting, then +1 from me. I wonder however if those who want to be free to use any IRI to, um, 'label' a graph in a triple store would be happy with this? (I was under the continuing impression that there was a consensus that this solution was unacceptable. Maybe this impression is now obsolete?)
