I am quickly coming to the conclusion that there are only two
options
left:

  1. Don't use http:// URIs in RDF you author/process/trust
  2. Don't trust URIs to refer to distinct entities

It seems that giving up 2 defeats the purpose of RDF.  So, are we
just left with 1?

  3. Use probabilities to guide the inference.
