The issue doesn't reflect my personal opinion, but captures what others have said. Specifically, Sören pointed out the following in his review:

>> According to the definition, an R2RML mapping graph in RDF/XML would *not* be a conforming R2RML mapping document. This is not intuitive.

Personally I'm not very concerned about this and am happy enough with the current design.

But that is not to say that it can't be improved.

I imagine that some minor editorial change (adding a Note, renaming a term) might address Sören's comment and might explain the reasoning for requiring a concrete syntax, without actually changing any conformance criteria.
