That's my point. The RDFm recc has nothing to say on this matter: it just
says that statement 'quads' must be created. That might have the implication
that statements that 'belong' to these quads are to be treated procedurally
in a different way. That is, we need (well, I'd like) some consensus on
transaction semantics for retracting reified statements. I don't actually
have a problem with using quads per se, sorry if I gave that impression.
