Can you elaborate or provide a reference on what you mean by "quote" and
why/how is it needed here? I feel like I'm missing some background: I've
read RDF Semantics (that's my favorite RDF spec, in fact), but I still
don't see your point.

If I am allowed (be the means of reification) to make statements about
statements, I can express anything basing, can't I? In the context of
context, I can either assert the statement myself, or assert that it is
asserted by someone else, and the latter is what I need (or at least can
use) reification for.
