Well, it's not an answer (and I'm not DanC), but we found
( <uri1> <uri2> ... <urii> ) log:entails <uri> . (*)
on the one side and its proof on the other side
and in resolving such a log:entails statement
the contents of <uri1>, <uri2>, ...<urii> are asserted
and, if the proof succeeds, <uri> as well
(but in the form of a proof argument).
So (*) can be a kind of *fuse* for the the assertion
of the contents of <uri>.
If the fuse blows up, the assertion is gone as well.
