Me: no, not necessarily. I can imagine that the structure of a dataset
could have a natural reading as an RDF graph (and hence, truth
conditions). But the general mechanism seems to be more analogous to
to things like .zip files / manifests. There might be reasons to
handle the outer structures as propositional but I don't see that as a
requirement.
