Last year I had produced two implementations of SHACL, one of a variant of
SHACL Core and one of a variant of SHACL-SPARQL.  Both implementations used
the strategy of converting each shape with targets into a single SPARQL
SELECT query, evaluating this query on the data graph, and using the
resultant solution set as top-level validation results.

I was planning on converting at least one of these implementations to the
final version of SHACL Core.  However, I will not be doing so with the
current definition of SHACL.  My implementation strategy does not produce
validation results for any non-top-level constraint violations.  It thus
does not conform to the current definition of SHACL, which requires that all
constraint violations MUST produce validation results.

The validation reports that my implementation would create could conform to
the rest of the current definition of SHACL, and could easily conform to
most of the rest of the current definition of SHACL.
