You write:
"The index gives the index of a statement within a context in document
order. The index allows preservation of statement order as if each RDF
<Description> defines a container, and folds the RDF concept of
container directly into the RDF Abstract Syntax."

Is it implicit that a single context only contains data from one
document? If not, how can 'document order' be preserved?  What if a
second document adds triples to a container?

Similarly, if the data at a given URI change, and are obtained again,
can/should they be merged into the existing context with the same base
URI (or is there a mechanism by which a new, different context URI would
be generated?).
