Tim,

further to Graham's message, the MT editor's draft

http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/TR/WD-rdf-mt-20030117/#Reif

now contains the extra text

"Note     that this way of understanding the reification vocabulary 
does not interpret     reification as a form of quotation. Rather, 
the reification describes the     relationship between a token of a 
triple and the resources that triple refers     to. The reification 
can be read intuitively as saying "'this piece of     RDF talks about 
these things" rather than "this piece of RDF has     this form".

which was inserted as a "health warning" in response to your comment.

Just for information, though criticism/comment of the text is of 
course welcome.

Pat
