Named Graphs

ISSUE proposals

ISSUE-5 Graph literals

  • PROPOSED: Close ISSUE-5 ("Should we define Graph Literal datatypes?"), saying No, we should not.

ISSUE-28 Syntactic nesting of g-texts

  • PROPOSED: Close ISSUE-28 ("Do we need syntactic nesting of graphs (g-texts) as in N3?"), saying No, we do not -- the use cases presented to the WG can be addressed without, and making syntactic nesting pay off would require additional logic machinery that's beyond this WG's scope.

ISSUE-29 Do we support SPARQL's notion of "default graph"?

  • PROPOSED: Close ISSUE-29 (Do we support SPARQL's notion of "default graph"?'), Yes, we do.

ISSUE-30 Relation RDF Datasets with multiple graphs

  • PROPOSED: Close ISSUE-30 ("How does SPARQL's notion of RDF dataset relate our notion of multiple graphs?"), saying we will use SPARQL's notion of RDF dataset as much of the foundation of our handling of multiple graphs.

ISSUE-33 Mechanism to refer to sub-graphs and/or individual triples

  • PROPOSED: Close ISSUE-33 ("Do we provide a way to refer sub-graphs and/or individual triples?"), with the understanding that datasets can be used to refer to sub-graphs and individual triples.
