In many cases we cannot do that.

In many cases we don't want to do that.
Representing everything as author statements (i.e. statements about statements) would require wholly different ontologies than those most of us are developing. Consistency checking and inferencing over biological relations would probably not be possible with such an ontology. There would be no need to use a fancy OWL ontology and reasoner in this scenario at all.
