Is "syntax" the right word?

How to call a set of restrictions for an RDF resource?

Examples of restrictions:

"There must be no more than one subject for object http://example.org/obj and predicate http://example.org/pred"

"If object http://example.org/obj has predicate http://example.org/pred it should also have predicate http://example.org/pred2"

Should it be called syntax?

Pro: It denotes syntax as opposed to semantics.

Counter: The word syntax may be reserved for concrete syntaxes such as Turtle or XML.

So, shall we call such a set of restrictions "syntax"? If not, which word to use?
