This is exactly what I meant
(though I would more naturally write (S, context, http://here.com/foo.rdf)
 but that really doesn't matter ;)

I guess that S should not be stated directly,
we would only have
  (S, subject, http://w3.org/logo)
  (S, predicate, s1:imageType)
  (S, object, s1:GIF)
  (S, context, http://here.com/foo.rdf)

(how funny that a native 4-uple model would reify them exactly that way...)

I think this is the least we could do

The most being integrating 4-uples right into RDF as native...
