As I said at the end of my message I can imagine this third option but I didn't see it mentioned so far.

However I think it also suffers from some of the problems mentioned for each option.

For instance one problem raised at the workshop and equivalent to what was done within the POWDER WG is that a graph may be huge and you might want to know that before retrieving it.
In some senarios (e.g. mobile web) it is good to be able to query only the metadata about the resource before deciding to retrieve the resource or in our case part of the resource (typical use case of POWDER).

Thus the second option has the advantage of providing you with metadata about the graph that you can use to decide whether or not to retrieve the full graph.
