I'll not be able to make the teleconference tomorrow, and realise that
I've been scarce as of late. But I suggest that any mention of "default
graph" be struck from the all core specifications except perhaps as a
historical note. If a graph without a name appears in a trig document
it should just be an unnamed graph (name it with a blank node if you
will). "default" should just be a configuration parameter in query
engines and has no particular significance beyond brevity for writing
queries.
