Re: newbie question about sparql and 200

My question has nothing to do with state, by the way. I just want to know
whether the obvious interpretation holds (a graph is an IR) and is
consistent with AWWW/httpRange-14, or whether some roundabout explanation is
needed to distinguish the graph from the IR.

Personally I would prefer the naive interpretation, the more inclusive
reading of IR, and would have said it was consistent with AWWW. But when I
have attempted this reasoning with other mathematical objects (such as
numbers) I have been "corrected" with the assertion that abstract things
like numbers and graphs are not IRs, and must be distinguished from the IRs
that describe them (or rather that provide representations of them). It was
under the assumption of this narrow IR interpretation that I said I
preferred the convoluted form, since I wouldn't want to force 303s for every
<u> that occurs in a FROM or WHERE.

I mainly want to know (in this instance), when I write metadata about an RDF
graph, can I use the same URI as the one that occurs in FROM and WHERE
clauses, and still be consistent with AWWW and httpRange-14? If I write two
triples, one that says <u> triple-count 133. (requiring an RDF graph as
subject) and another that says <u> dc:author "John Maynard Smith".
(requiring a document as subject), is that inconsistent? Do I need to create
separate URIs for the graph and the document?
