Graham, do you really mean 'any meaningful semantics', or do you mean
that it is not syntactically rich enough to support, for example expressions
with quantifiers.  It seem to me rich enough to support the assertion of 
'ground facts' with the semantics defined in the definition of the
semantics of the URI's involved.
