I planned to make Redland use four things (internally) with an
identifier as the fourth like everyone else around 2 months ago but
piled to a halt with getting it right to support 'statements',
'reified statements', 'contexts' and 'containers' where all those
terms are up for discussion, as we have seen.

As an implementer I have a very hard time keeping up with the many
different syntaxes of examples, terminology from various domains and
mathematical notation and jargon.   It would be pleasant to at least
agree a common set of definitions and words rather than keep going
round in circles.

Having said that, I can see the glimerings of some implementable answers.
