Hmm. As far as I can tell you want to be able to point to the bit

  <s:Creator>tmhead</s:creator>

and then you can make statements about that URI. Xpointer does this.

Then what you really want is a fragment mechanism that tells you what the
context of that thing is.

  Please excuse me this naive question.
  1)
  Lets say somewhere in a document "A" I have a statement:

    <rdf:Description about="http://www.nnn.com/tmdoc">
      <s:Creator resource="http://www.nnn.com/tmhead">
    </rdf:Description>

  In order to express additional info about the guy addressed by "s:Creator"
  property (identified by resource "http://www.w3.org/Home/tmhead")
  I can write something like:

    <rdf:Description about="http://www.nnn.com/tmhead">
      <s:age>77</s:age>
      <s:hobby>scuba</s:hobby>
      ...
    </rdf:Description>
  2)
  Suppose that I have somewhere instead:
    <rdf:Description about="http://www.nnn.com/tmdoc">
      <s:Creator>tmhead</s:Creator>
    </rdf:Description>

  What is the STANDARD way in RDF to supply information
  about this guy "tmhead" who is "s:Creator" of the resource without modifying
  original statement?
  (i.e. reify?)

  This must be a very naive question, but I just could not figure it out.

  Thanks,

  Nikita.
