If I understand your case we have:

Context 1:  URI1 [S1, P1, O1]
Context 2:  URI1 [S2, P2, O2]

If the reified statement refers to the entity (the abstract thing)
and the contexts are aggregated, then I think we could infer:

S1 --isEquivalentTo--> S2
P1 --isEquvalentTo--> P2
O1 --isEquivalentTo--> O2

But if the reified statement refers to the representation of the
entity relationship, then somebody used the wrong URI.

I'm so confused....
