I use statements about properties to qualify a property as being a method,
providing text information about that property, and so forth.

The domain and range statements made about properties in the RDFS model are
examples of this as well.

It's good to have things that can point anywhere in the model at any time.
The restrictions on "object" are somewhat arbitrary, too.  I think that most
implementations (including both that I've done) don't treat the object field
any differently.

In fact, my implementation simply keeps triples (java.lang.Object,
java.lang.Object, java.lang.Object), and uses an indirection mechanism to
yield sorting keys (URIs) to those objects.  That lets me make statements
about and with any object I want.
