Well, in that case, okay.

Well spotted. Alistair and Sean take note...

The sentence in question is:

    Note that the information source defining the new concept
    scheme does not re-assert the RDF statements for the
    ex1:cats concept, e.g., its skos:prefLabel.

I think it was the notion of "re-asserting" an RDF statement
that had me briefly flummoxed. As in: is this about making
NEW statements that happen to say the same thing or actually
about somehow re-asserting THE SAME statements (and how does
one do that - with some sort of import...)?

I agree about "things" versus "information", and I think
"replicate" might clarify things, so perhaps:

    ...does not replicate information about the
    <code>ex1:cats</code> concept, such as its preferred label.
