Look at that, and look at the date:

I'm a bit confused that problem is raised again and again, and never solved.

Sure, we need do distinguish "statings" (occurences of statements) from "facts" (abstract universal statements). And we need to agree about whether the reified statements proposed in the spec are of the former or the latter kind.

Though my vote would be that statements are statings, the spec asserts that a member of the set Statements is fully indentified by its subject/predicate/object components. Or may we consider, as Seth suggests, that this concerns the set of statements in a single model ? Sounds good to me.
