I'm still confused as to how Resource Shapes look from the outside.

If I take the description as it stands, it appears that the way that Resource 
Shapes is called is with a shape, a graph, and a node and the result is 
whether the the node in the graph matches the shape.    Some of the 
constraints in shapes can bring other graphs into the mix.  (Here there is a 
problem in the description, as other graph is supposed to be matched against a 
shape, but this doesn't fit the provided API.)

There are other problems as well.

What I expected to see is something like:

Resource Shapes validates an RDF graph containing shapes and controlling 
information against an RDF containing information to be validated.  The basic 
operation is validating a shape against a node in the information graph. 
Controlling information determines which basic operations are to be performed, 
and include direct validation of a shape against a node and validation of a 
shape against each instance of a class.
