No that goes too far - the interpretation of a reified statement is clearly
defined by RDF Semantics - but this differs from the applications that
reification is often used for. That was the best the WG could do and it is a
known limitation with the current round of RDF. That's why thing like
contexts ended up in the postponed pile.
