I just looked this up, and the definition seems to be in section 8
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-rdf-sparql-query-20080115/#rdfDataset
"An RDF Dataset comprises one graph, the default graph, which does not 
have a name, and zero or more named graphs, where each named graph is 
identified by an IRI."

This wording seems to me to suggest that G is a named graph if and only 
if there is a pair

(u, G)

in the dataset.
