I'll have to dig through the email archive, but I recall that both 
Arthur and I made a case for a "general" scope that included the entire 
data graph without further refinement. That may be the origin of this. 
(I don't see it in the UCR.)

If your data graph is simple and flat, further scoping beyond "the data 
graph" may not be possible. I don't, however, have an example in hand, 
although I can imagine such scenarios. I will poke around some more. The 
validation rules in that case would look like:

In the data graph, every dct:subject must have an IRI for an object; 
every dct:title must have a literal for an object.

I don't think this is going to be a common case, but since Arthur also 
brought it up, maybe Jim has something to say based on OSLC experience?
