Dan--

To further clarify your comments, you were referring to *reification*
going from the Primer (that is, the current section in the RDF Primer
describing reification, which is largely redundant with the coverage in
the RDF Semantics document, is being proposed for elimination).  If
*RDF* goes from the Primer...well, I know some people would prefer a
shorter Primer, and that certainly would shorten it!
