If I've got the right bit of syntax, the trouble I see is that I don't know 
how to represent it in a pure graph form.

I really want to resolve this at the model level, not the XML serialization 
level.  For example, reading the "Cambridge 
Communique"  <http://www.w3.org/TR/schema-arch>, recommendation 8, we can 
expect alternative serialization forms in due course.


Is this the syntax you meant?:

   <description about='uri for device'>
     <foo:screensize ID='ss'  >64 32</foo:screensize>
     <foo:colours    ID='clrs'>2</foo:colours>
   <description about='#ss'      foo:context='#context'/>
   <description about='#clrs'    foo:context='#context'/>
   <description about='#context' foo:assertedBy='Brian'/>
