RDF already allows you to identify statements in the serialization through
rdf:ID. This is compact in the serialization. It does translate into reification
in the data model but implementations can, and in some cases do, store such
reifications efficiently.

Non-standard extensions would be best avoided if you want SIMILE to be a full
participant in the semantic web.
