This sounds like the approach taken by the Dublin Core Description Set 
Profile.[1] It has some advantages (you can overlay graphs of any type), 
and some disadvantages (the graph shape may not be coincident with the 
graph meaning, especially when you have errors like missing properties).

I have a hard time thinking of this in the abstract, so some real 
examples would be good. Can you provide any?
