I guess we have different requirements. We do trust the sources, and
want to allow building such a network of graphs. We can have
hierarchical dependencies of graphs, as you propose. But we can (and
want to) do more. 

Your proposal would be a kind of import mechanism, which is a bit more
sophisticated than including a whole graph.
Networked Graphs can even be used as a distributed rule mechanism and
are much more expressive.

Anyway, I do not think I should generally distrust every source, which
uses information I have created myself and which I highly trust. This
would basically be the result of what you propose. ;-)
