Is there a shape-in-shape construct in SPIN that needs pre-binding?   That
would presumably give excellent guidance on how to do shape-in-shape in SHACL.

Looking at
it appears that SPIN is doing something different from what is needed for
sh:hasShape, however.

It appears that magic properties are where pre-binding is most needed.  This
is even outside a FILTER construct, so there is a need to allow multiple
values for the same variable.

Given that pre-binding is in use in SPIN, is there a definition from SPIN that
can be used in SHACL?
