Re: Question about body and motivatedBy

I'm wondering if it makes sense to have *motivatedBy* in this case.

I try to explain:
when you build these semantic statements the predicate itself express the
motivation of the annotation and so I feel like adding the
*motivatedBy* predicate
it's a kind of *redundant information*.

Then when you build annotation that don't have triples in the body it makes
sense to express the motivation.
What do you think about it?
