Jos--

Can you say a little more about why you don't want to lose this 
entailment?  Note: my understanding is that even under F an application 
would still be able to access the triples

        :I :love "RDF".
        :You :love "RDF".

and deduce anything it wanted, including

        :I :love _:x.
        :You :love _:x.

(presumably on the basis that the two "RDF" strings *may* have been 
meant to refer to the same thing).  It's only entailments directly 
defined by the RDF semantics we're talking about here, not additional 
determinations that applications may want to make, right?
