There is no format that has a priori more right to be the RDF format than another. So I see no difference between RDF/XML, Turtle, RDFa or other formats that could be GRDDLed in that respect. They are all strings that have to be transformed into triples. :-)

"A graph is the looked up"? Sounds a bit heavy. I don't see what is wrong with queried. You ask something of the graph.
Since our SPARQL uses the ASK query, it fits nicely. SPARQL is a query language after all.

Anyway, thanks for the input.
