  Ah. When I was asking about context before I had something rather
different in mind. Let's say the *pages* of your diary are numbered
1...1234, and each of those pages contains a set of statements. The context
I was looking for of page 1222 would be all the statements on that page. The
problem as I see it in RDF is that we can easily refer to page 1222 (by it's
URI), but that gives us the page (document), and there's an air gap between
that and the statements it contains (the RDF model).
  C heers,
