I think Semantics should just refer to Concepts without attempting to paraphrase it. 
RDF datasets are defined in [RDF11-CONCEPTS].

Another problem is that the same IRI can be paired multiple times.  It  
needs to say the IRIs/blank nodes are uniquely paired. 
 
(<iri>, G1) (<iri>, G2) 
 
fits the description in semantics. 
 
Why not adopt the languge from, or at least closer to, RDF concepts? 
 
Talking about pairing one graph with one or more IRIs or blank nodes is  
not clear (to me at least).
