Will all descriptorsets be defined in the same file, and as a
consequence share a single abouthosts?

If yes, then:

looks OK.

If we allow any rdf:resource and not only local names, then if any
single one of the descriptorsets is associated with an abouthosts that
does not cover the resource, then the whole description becomes invalid.
It is not (at least as things stand) possible "filter out" the offending
descriptorset and apply the remaining ones.
