It occurred to me that the techniques behind 
my "simplified" MKR interfaces to TAP and OpenCyc 
could be used to sneak these more advanced concepts 
into existing RDF tools.  Here's how it can work.

1. statement triples
    subject predicate object

2. questions
Just replace one or more of subject,predicate,object 
with "?"   For example
    subject type ?
    ? subClassOf object

3. simple commands
    do command object
The implied subject associated with "do" is 
the KB system performing the action "command".

4. assignments
    set variable value
The implied subject associated with "set" is 
the KB system.  "variable" is an attribute of
the KB system.

5. context
    at view value
The implied subject associated with "at" is 
the KB system, setting the current context.
