I presume you mean

(ie 'N1' in the second occurrence, not N2)

One kind of use that I am thinking of is just using RDF datasets to record multiple graphs, which no commitment to any interchange of information between the named graphs or between the default graph and the named graphs or even any commitment to having the names being formally related to the graphs.
