Sorry this has taken so long, but the 'RDF plus contexts' proposal is now on the wiki at http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/wiki/RDFwithContexts#RDFC:_RDF_with_Contexts.  I havnt yet applied it to all the use case, but hopefully I will have that outlined by Wednesday. I have tried to keep it brief (earlier drafts were starting to read like a doctoral thesis.)

I hope it makes sense, but ask questions if not. There are also some informative slides on slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/PatHayes/rdf-with-contexts

FWIW, the 'context logic' one gets here is very similar indeed to that developed by Guha and used in CYCL very successfully. The genesis of this idea was noticing how very similar CYC's notion of context inheritance was to owl:imports.
