Indeed. This is what we are using in myGrid for collecting the RDF 
provenance during workflow runs. The graph name of each workflow run 
gives the signature to everything produced in each workflow run. It has 
shown the potential interests from real bio-users, by allowing them to 
retrieve data by their provenance signature, i.e. the run that produced 
them. A talk about this application has been given in the RDF workshop 
in Ediburgh this June by Daniele Turi, the main developer of this
