What about this,

:a {
    :moon :substance :green_cheese .
}

:b {
    :moon :substance :blue_cheese .
}

:c {
    :bob :thinks :a .
    :alice :thinks :b .
}

This is all fine and true and everything. But what then in the
(common) case where the default graph is the union of all named
graphs, we have the merge of :a and :b which (suppose) is false
because we know the moon is only made of one kind of cheese?

Cheers,
