thanks for the notification and the question.

Personally (ie, with my activity lead hat off) the only approach I see for the problem you site is to use some sort of an extra syntax to express what we currently refer to as 'named graphs' within, say, Turtle. But, as you well know, there is no standard syntax for something like that at this moment. 

Although nothing is decided yet, this issue is most probably one of the items that a new RDF 'Next' Working Group will pick up, at least if we look at the results of the RDF Questionnaire[1]. But nothing is decided yet, and whatever solution that WG might provide will not come in time for your work to complete.

Other members of the CG may have better ideas...

Please, note that you will receive from Thierry a detailed answer to all your questions in a separate email. Please, note also that an RDF/OWL version of the ontology will be included in an Appendix in the next publication of this document.
