Hello everybody,

after struggling with (internal) context modelling, reification, 
quintuples and n-ary relations etc., I came up with releasing an 
extension of the Property Reification Vocabulary proposal from [1], 
which can be found here[2].
It reflects in general an outsourcable (and hence optional evaluable) 
modelling approach, which was made by Toby Inkster (see [3]). This 
modelling approach was extended to loosen the mapping from a "shortcut 
relation" property to a specific reification class and hence enabling 
the opportunity to reuse one reification class for several property 
reification definitions. So it goes beyond modelling cases, which can 
also be addressed more or less by an owl:propertyChainAxiom.
As proof-of-concept-example I modelled appropriated property reification 
definitions for the Cognitive Characteristics Ontology (see [4]).

What do you think about this approach (and its relation to RDF Reification)?
