Does not proove much since we still have to know if "statement" means "stating" or "abstract statement"...

The argument from the formal model (about Statement being a *set*) is more convincing to me.

And not less annoying :
that would mean that any two resources having the same type, subject, predicate and object should be unified, which is quite yuck-y !
