'logical reading' not about meaning: Re: Three solution designs to the first three Graphs use cases

Hi Sandro

I expressed my difficulties about UC3 several years ago:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-logic/2004Apr/0029.html

The problem with 'endorses' is that the only proper legally compelling 
meaning of endorsing a document, is to endorse the words of the 
document, NOT it's meaning.
The way your text reads "agrees or disagrees" has to be about the 
triples  (as you say), not their interpretation, or we open Pandora's 
box, and o I find all three of your use cases are talking about graphs 
with essentially some way of naming them. All the problems are then 
reduced to that of time (i.e. your UC2), which is addressed on the Web 
by technologies such as the way back machine.
