Fine with me.  The issue about the Primer was raised in 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2003JanMar/0125.html
It was explicitly about the Primer apparently illustrating a nested 
statement, which wasn't the intent, and I agreed to change that. 
However, later messages in the thread brought in propositional attitudes 
and other issues, and I wasn't sure that I could handle those just in 
the Primer.  I agree that Bob's basic concerns are with the 
specification of reification, which is why I explicitly mentioned the 
connection.  At the same time, if we change the specification of 
reification, then we probably need to change the Primer (and I'd like 
some guidance on how, when we come to that).
