@riccardoAlbertoni - i think the problem is the assumption that a dataset has exactly one meaningful query - either its a very unusual case and perhaps not important for the wider community, or queries are very common in which case a single query is unlikely to work very well - too much interoperability loss by overloading the intention for related cases.  

I could imagine a generic templated query object that is a qualified association whereby you can define the model profile the query uses with dct:conformsTo - and examples for things in the Web architecture 'canon'  - such as URL templating and Opensearch.  I have seen the void:sparqlEndpoint but never found an interoperability based use for it except in conjunction with some query model, (outside "i want a Linked Data star" or experimental "play with SPARQL" motivations) .   Its not that useful to have such a scalar property in practice AFAICT, but perhaps a canonical  qualified relation is probably a good thing.
