can any resource have items?

Dear all,
	 As to the RDF/XML syntax,any resource or bnode can have li items. But in RDF M&S 
only Bag,Alt and Seq are explicitly allowed to have items. (There is no rules 
explicitly forbiding resources other than the three types of containers to have items,either.) 
     If any rdf node (other than literal) can have items, then the speciality of Bag, Alt
and Seq is that the relations between their items are explicitly defined but not that they 
can contain items.
     It is strange that in the famous Jena and several other rdf systems the classes of resource and blank node don't have the ability of containing items. Did I misunderstand
the rdf model or Jena? 

Best regards,

ZHANG Jian Feng
