Not really. It's just not true.

Perhaps SPARQL makes it a bit less true. "less and less" doesn't seem  
right at all.

It may be a de facto standard, but that's a different issue. I'm not  
clear it's a de facto standard. Just saying that tools have *some*  
sort of context support doesn't support the idea of a de facto  
standard. Toolkits have had that for years without a whit bit better  
interop or convergence.

Some evidence that a wide range of RDF tools use a particular named  
graph technique with a common serialization would be nice to have.

I think you'll find less consensus about that than you might hope :(
