This surprises me;

Table 1. Correspondence between RDF and RIF symbols.
 RDF Symbol Example RIF Symbol Example
 Absolute IRI <http://www.w3.org/2007/rif> Absolute IRI
"http://www.w3.org/2007/rif"^^rif:iri

 -- http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-rif-rdf-owl-20080415/

The notation <http://www.w3.org/2007/rif> in turtle, N3,
and SPARQL is *use* of a symbol, where
"http://www.w3.org/2007/rif"^^rif:iri is *mention*
of a symbol.

RIF seems to be using "http://www.w3.org/2007/rif"^^rif:iri
for use of a symbol.

Am I reading that right?
