Do you have evidence to support this claim? I have heard it as 
an opinion several times but I was curious whether this was 
clarified in any document.

Anything that can be identified is a resource and RDF statements 
can clearly be identified, so I'm pretty sure statements are 
resources. The issue, I think, is that RDF provides no built-in 
way to identify and address these resources.
