Of course, one possibility to do this would be to allow graphsets to
contain other graphsets, e.g. like this:

~    <graphset>
~        <graphset>
~            <uri>http://example.org/aGraphset</uri>

~            <graph>
~                <uri>http://example.org/aGraphset#aGraph</uri>
~                ...
~            </graph>
~        </graphset>

~        <graph>
~            <uri>#anotherGraph</uri>
~        </graph>
~    </graphset>

This *would* solve the quoting problem.

It's just more complex.
