Natural language can be confusing.

<u> rdf:label G .

so is <u> labelled by G ?
    "<u> has a label of G"
    "G is a label for <u>"

or is <u> labelling G ?
    "<u> is a label for G"
    "G has a label of <u>"

(sometimes it does not matter -- e.g. sameValue).

"labelled graphs" is more of the style "<u> is a label of G".

All that is needed as the most basic building block is a neutral 
association of (<u>, G) and that within a dataset (<ui>, Gi) is 
functional from <ui> to Gi : given a label, find the associated graph.
