What if we just drop this part. There are still two named graphs in the
example but we don't make any statements about the graphs (because we can't
in an interoperable way). The

Could stay in the document or be augmented by, e.g., saying that "
http://example.org/bob" in the triple

  <http://example.org/bob> <is published by> <http://example.org> .

does not refer to the graph without out-of-band knowledge indicating it.

The examples in section 5.2 (and the figure there) and appendix C would of
course have to be updated accordingly.

IMO that would be the most uncontroversial way forward. Thoughts?
