shapes-ISSUE-57 (labra): Grouping of Shapes [SHACL Spec]


Raised by: Jose Emilio Labra Gayo
On product: SHACL Spec

When combining Shapes with and and or operators, it is natural to group those shapes. In compact syntax, grouping is represented by parenthesis. 

For example:

<PersonShape> {
  foaf:name xsd:string
| ( foaf:firstName xsd:string +
  , foaf:lastName xsd:String

A natural extension is to add cardinalities on those groups. SHACL spec should define if groupings and cardinalities over groupings are possible.
