During the Amsterdam F2F there was a discussion regarding  
NamedGraphs. Chimezie and I have started compiling some of the  
reasons why NG may have unique value in the Life Sciences (and  
Healthcare) domain. We have also collected some references to their  
history, and some current ways of implementing them (since they are  
not yet part of the standard W3C SW spec).


We welcome others to add their own examples or comments to this list,  
since it will be useful to capture these specific use-cases, and  
present them to the other technical SW W3C WG's. I would specifically  
point out their potential in implementing systems that could support  
annotations (and their provenance), whose believability may depend  
both on who contributed the annotation graph AND who is interested in  
accessing the annotation.
