I'm at a bit of a loss as to how graph naming should be represented in
an actual application that syndicates TriX files from multiple places.
What if two TriX graphsets describe the same graph, but inconsistently
(i.e., different sets of triples)?

It seems necessary to be able to not only say, "B said that C," but
also, "A said that B said that C."

Also, I'm confused by your use of bnodes. Your graph naming algorithm
requires that one bnode can be shared by different graphs in the same
graphset. That's quite a deviation from the RDF abstract syntax, and
would require significant changes to implementations, I think. I would
be more comfortable if you would only use URIs for graphs, and specified
that <id>foo</id> in one graph in a set is not the same as <id>foo</id>
in another.
