I don't think I agree about that, as you say below it sometimes requires a little care over graph naming, but it's not hard. SPARQL's GRAPH keyword makes it pretty convenient to work with.

You can also do it with another named graph, depending on your use case that can be more convenient, e.g. so you can use PUT to replace the assertions about a graph.
