Hi,

while I'm thinking about reification methods / N-ary relations and 
reviewing [1,2,3,4], I came to the conclusion: what are the reasons 
against property instantiations?

For example:

ex:APerson ex:ASkill ex:ATopic .

ex:ASkill a cco:skill ;
	... . # further descriptions

Cheers,


Bob


PS: One can also create standard predicate individuals, which consist 
only of the typing of the property instance to reflect the binary 
relation case.
