2. Shapes

Is: "Shapes are instances of the class sh:Shape and define a group of 
constraints that a set of focus nodes can be validated against."

Suggest: "Shapes are graphs that are instances of the the class 
sh:Shape. Shapes define one or more focus nodes in a data graph and 
constraints on triples in those focus nodes. The triples in the focus 
nodes are validated against the constraints in the shape."

I also suggest that we define "shape" as "an RDF graph of type sh:Shape" 
and not use "shape graph" but always use "shape" since "shape graph" is 

I can make this change if we have agreement on it. If I don't hear back 
I may make this definition an issue.
