Well if this is true than we're going to need another class to undo this
effect. The same triple can be asserted by multiple people and often we'll
want to talk about the stating. Hmm, perhaps:

    [ a :Stating ; rdf:value { :TestCases :utility :high } ]

would work.

(To DaveB, the {} in this example should resolve to a single reified
triple.)
