But the documentation of the predicate would still need to talk about 
how its fitting inside a dataset, right?    In the design you're 
suggesting it would *also* have to talk about Web dereferencing, in the 
case where the named graph is absent.   I'd hate for every predicate 
about graphs to have to explain all this, each time.
