The graph itself is just a structure.   Whatever interpretations you 
might give to it, equality, etc, doesn't change the structure itself.   
And the dataset is just concerned with the structure. The graph name is 
attached to the graph (a structure), not the logical meaning of the 
graph, or the consequences of that meaning, or something like that.
