Yes.    rdf:Graph doesn't add to the expressive power; it's just an
important convenience feature.

It lets us use cc:license (and things like that) instead of defining a
new predicate, licenceOfAssociatedGraph.   That is:

  { ?x a rdf:Graph;
       cc:license <L> }   

could instead be written as:

  { ?x eg:licenseOfAssociatedGraph <L> }

But...  we could explore this a bit more.  Maybe it would be okay to
just use cc:license without the rdf:Graph declaration.
