In concepts we read:

[[
An RDF dataset is a collection of RDF graphs, and comprises:

	• Exactly one default graph, being an RDF graph. The default graph does not have a name and may be empty.
	• Zero or more named graphs. Each named graph is a pair consisting of an IRI or a blank node (the graph name), and an RDF graph. Graph names are unique within an RDF dataset.
]]

In semantics we read:

[[
An RDF dataset (see [RDF11-CONCEPTS]) is a finite set of RDF graphs each paired with an IRI or blank node called the graph name, 
]]


These are different.

In particular.

Concepts allows:


<eg:a> {}

<eg:b> {}


And semantics does not, since the empty graph is not paired with a single IRI or blank node.
