Hi Ruben

Indeed - RDF spec doesnt touch that issue. We could use i.e. rdfg:Graph to 
denote that <graph://a> is a graph, but still it would be on the vocabulary 
level rather than RDF internals.

As I wrote, RomanticWeb is a tool, thus it was easier and more efficient to 
have a single "special purpose" graph that can be queried than to have it 
scattered around the dataset. I feel it's also less polluting.
