I believe that the solution to this issue is to make the following small
change to the profiles document as in various other places where
reasoning over RDF triples is performed, including pD*.  Boris has
pointed out that it is very hard to avoid this sort of generalization.


 The implications are given as universally quantified first-order
 implications over a ternary predicate <span class="name">T</span>. This
 predicate represents RDF triples 
	generalized to allow bnodes and literals in all position
	(similar to the partial generalization in pD*); 
 thus, <span class="name">T(s, p, o)</span> represents a 
	generalized 
 RDF  triple with the subject <span class="name">s</span>, predicate
 <span class="name">p</span>, and the object <span class="name">o</span>.


I so propose that ISSUE-141 be resolved in this fashion.
