Agreed. But then it is a requirement for the software implementing the
Query API to do this (gets complicated - forget about simple mappings
to databases....)

An observation here:
         We have then a lot of "virtual" triples, which are not (physically)
         part of the defined datamodel!
         Another issue for standardization...

Ciao,
         Stefan
