The target nodes become focus nodes for the duration of the actual

nodes, because they are invoked as part of a nested validation (sh:or etc).

Ok, I have tweaked that sentence further:

Validating a <a>data graph</a> against a <a>shape</a> involves 
validating the target nodes for all targets of the shape.
