True, unless such additional statements are marked.  This issue came up
before when regarding reified statements in the model, which are not
explicitly in the input serialization.

I think such "annotations" are inevitable, and in many cases, downright
useful.  The trick is to decide how much of the model is revealed through
the API, or through output serialization.

It may be sensible to control the view of the model that a client has and
what gets serialized by applying appropriate filters, such as "Show/Hide
Reified Statements" or "Show/Hide Annotations", etc.
