The answer to this question influence the way we can say things about
reified statements.  As an example (don't know anything about the
dates.. :-)

Model 1:

 S1: god notplayswith dice
 S2: S1 statedBy einstein
 S3: S1 statedAt 1950-04-10

Model 2:

 S1: god notplayswith dice
 S2: S1 statedBy jonas
 S3: S1 statedAt 2000-11-17

Combined:

 S1: god notplayswith dice
 S2: S1 statedBy einstein
 S3: S1 statedBy jonas
 S4: S1 statedAt 1950-04-10
 S5: S1 statedAt 2000-11-17


Is this what we want?  In that case, we will have to make the
*stating* diffrent from the *statement*:

 S1: god notplayswith dice
 S2: S1 statedBy einstein
 S3: S2 statedAt 1950-04-10
