I think that, to serve its intended purpose, that "reification" will need 
to be handled in the core.  A message I have taken from the RDF-logic 
discussion that it is really an abstract syntactic device to allow us to 
express statement "nesting" (i.e. use without assertion).

See also my separate "abstract syntax" message.
