on ontologies/vocabulary

"The data graph is expected to include all the ontology axioms related to
the data and especially all the rdfs:subClassOf triples in order for SHACL
to correctly identify class targets and validate Core SHACL constraints."

"The same mechanism applies for ontologies or vocabularies. The ontology or
the vocabulary IRI can point to one or more graphs with the predicate
sh:shapesGraph.  A SHACL processor MAY take this information into account to
determine which shapes graph to use for validating a data graph that uses
that ontology or vocabulary."

There is no defined notion that can be used to support "the ontology or
vocabulary IRI".
