Well then how do you propose we refer to all statements that have a particular
property?

    [S] --rdf:Type-----> [rdf:Statement(s)]
    [S] --rdf:property--> [SomeResource]

Or all statements that have a particular object?

    [S] --rdf:Type-----> [rdf:Statement(s)]
    [S] --rdf:object--> [SomeResource, literal, or statement]

Or all statements that have a particular subject?

    [S] --rdf:Type-----> [rdf:Statement(s)]
    [S] --rdf:subject--> [SomeResource]

</rai:??>
