Ok, but I would like to compare our two different ways of solving context and
reification.  I have provided the quads for my way below.

Suppose we have a statement:

[id1, Bush, wonThe, Election]

Placing that in ~two~ ~different~ contexts?

[id2, context1, asserts, id1]
[id3, context2, asserts, id1]

Talking about it - reification:

[id4, s1, reifies, id1]
[id5, s1, whateverP, whateverO]

Putting information about reified statements in 2 different contexts:

[id6, context3, asserts, s1]
[id7, context4, asserts, s1]

Talking about an assertion of the context of another statement:

[id8, s2, reifies, id3]
[id9, s2, whateverP, whateverO]

So how would you do all that with your technique?

I think my technique scales to different orders of reference very nicely :))
