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?)

I don't know how other people feel on the subject, but my impression that that using URIs to "label" a graph is such common behaviour that writing anything contradictory in a document is just tilting at windmills.
