What are the options?  What are the best options?

Alice <apples> 10 .

Alice <hasApples> 10 .

Alice <has> _:apples .
_:apples <count> 10 .
_:apples <variety> "Macintosh" .

Alice <has> _:apples2 .
_:apples2 <count> 2 .
_:apples2 <variety> "Braeburn" .

Or with facets, i.e. edge attributes a la dgraph: https://docs.dgraph.io/query-language/#facets-edge-attributes

Alice <has> <apple> (count=10, since=20180201T12:00:00, weight=4.5^^<lbs>) .

Or

_:apples <isA> <apple> .
_:apples <variety> "Braeburn" .
Alice <has> _:apples (count=10, since=20180201T12:00:00) .
