I guess I have this problem to.
I can see that WOWG has stated a requirement for unasserted triples, and
that a range of solutions has been proposed.

However, the real problem is something else.

It is this semantic layering problem, and dark triples is the solution.

I am beginning to understand the problem. I have yet to understand the
solution.

In terms of WOWG and RDFCore the problem is:
 "It is difficult to layer a language on top of RDF because the syntactic
and semantic layering get confused"

or something like that; with DAML+OIL as an example.
