Well I must be be dense, but I still don't see any implicit assignment of
statements to a context.  But I do see the implicitly defined  bag for the
statements with the same subject.

Is xml:base a RDF container?  If so what does it contain, statements?   Then
could we do a something like

<RDF xml:base="...foo">
    ....descriptions ....
</RDF>

<rdf:Description aboutEach="...foo">
    <contextFor rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/context1"/>
 </rdf:Description>

?  .. because that would work for me ... but i didn't think we could do it.
