It may also be reasonable to go so far as to define that virtual
global graph of statements to be that set of statements which
are obtainable from representations accessible via the Web at
any given time.

Thus, there can be statements about resources which (the 
statements) are not considered part of the semantic web 
because they are not accessible in some fashion via the web.
