Yes, but I think we should have a simple definition of what a Shape is and
I think this definition could be it. I also think that in the context of
this group we can differentiate between a constraint and a shape, saying
that a shape is a set of constraints on some RDF node.

Apart from that, we can maintain the definitions of "constraint", "scoped
constraint" and "unscoped constraint" which I also think they make sense.

Best regards, Jose Labra
