Hi Yves,

I took an action to propose some informative wording regarding the possibility of identifying subgraphs of a larger graph. See below for a first attempt. I suppose this would go somewhere near the definition of “RDF dataset” or whatever we end up calling these things. The terminology (named graphs etc.) still may have to change of course. Is this wording ok for you?


Note: Graphs in an RDF dataset may overlap. The same underlying set of triples may be divided up into named graphs along multiple dimensions (such as data owner or subject area) by repeating each triple in multiple graphs. Whether such a setup would be realized by storing each triple multiple times, or through views of some sort, is up to the implementation.
