I think of that as a separate question, 
to be asked after we have agreed on the "fundamental" view of context.  
How can we structure or simplify the context?

    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,
    Danny.
