My concern is also to know if an axiomatization of RM4TM as a
mathematical graph will meet a documented and well-known type of graph, or
some weird form that nobody has cared to study yet.

As an invited expert on this mailing list, you are also an invited expert
to any WG3 meeting, including the one to be held in Baltimore. The Reference
Model will be discussed in depth on the Monday, so I suggest you try and
attend on that day at least.
As convenor of WG3 I would be happy to give you some time to present your
findings, but you should be aware that there will probably be a lot going
on on that day, so be prepared to squeeze your report into a fairly short
time, perhaps as little as half an hour (including discussion).
I will be suggesting that Steve N and Michel take charge of the agenda for
most of Monday (once we have some other minor details out of the way).

Question en paasant : Why not use the word "topic" instead of "node" throughout? To what extent is the above different of all the existing prose in ISO 13250, XTM 1.0, Published Subjects TC ... "In a topic map, a topic is the formal representation of a single subject". The notion of having nodes in the TMG representing "implicit" subjects that are not topics in the corresponding topic map is IMO extremely confusing and hard to grasp.

you shouldn't have a complete sentence as a heading,
particularly when
you repeat it as the first sentence of the following paragraph.

Topic map graphs consist of nodes and arcs.
