As I said in a previous post, I think there is an interaction between 
graph  and subquery patterns. Does the graph pattern apply to subquery:

graph ?g {
   {select * where { ... }}

I think this is not obvious because we can consider that the subquery 
creates a fresh new evaluation environment without graph ?g as current 

This interpretation is based on this case:

graph ?g1 {
   graph ?g2 { }

In this example, graph ?g2 creates a new evaluation environment in which 
graph ?g2 overloads/hides graph ?g1. We could have the same behavior 
with subquery.

I think that the recommendation should explicit the behavior of graph 
pattern vs subquery.
