(repeating Dan Connolly yesterday...)

This seems to be a common myth.  Where in the current definition of
RDF does it say that you cannot describe (mention) a triple without
asserting (using) it?

(I wont be shocked if it does say it somewhere -- I'm not fond of the
current REC -- but I would love a pointer if you happen to know where
it says this.)
