What do you mean by "selecting"? Do you mean there should be RDF triples somewhere that state what semantics is in effect in the default graph and in all named graphs?

I'm not quite sure what the purpose would be. "Selecting entailment regimes" makes sense for the configuration of a reasoner or of a query engine. I don't understand why one would want to have that in the RDF Semantics spec.

Best,
