Yes, but we could also claim that Graph URIs or IRIs are akin to Data 
Source Names (DSNs). The entire DBMS realm is familiar with the concept 
of DSNs due to ODBC ubiquity across RDBMS communities.

Right now, most users and developers assume:

- an RDF Graph URI or IRI denotes a dataset within a quad store/dbms
- an RDF dataset is comprised of triples .
