Anything stopping me creating an ex:value which does have a strong 
meaning and definition where in usage both of the following express the 
same:

:me foaf:name 'nathan'^^xsd:string .

:me foaf:name [ ex:value 'nathan'^^xsd:string ] .

or does a property with this meaning exist (?) / any input on just how 
one would define this with rdfs/owl

Best,

Nathan
