A question, if I may...

I have seen two kinds of statement made about logic in RDF:

(a) RDF has logical conjunction (multiple predicates of a subject generally 
taken to be parts of a conjunction)

(b) RDF has no built-in logic (as you say above)

Are there differing views, or am I missing something?
