The implications are all in the abstract syntax document. I understood the expression of it in the SHACL doc as being an editorial issue. The text in the abstract syntax document is very similar to the expression in the current partition text. (There are also two implementations that run in a JVM, Iovka's Java implementation and Jose's Scala implementation.)
