What is the connection between part of statement and precision? I 
would think it would be equally reasonable to say about relations that
 they are "are intentionally fuzzy and high level" and don't 
understand why we come to consensus about motivations but not 
relations.

Just as we say nothing in the spec about what shape a body or target 
of an annotation motivatedBy describing has we can similarly define 
"describes" with range and domain as simply rdf:Resource. Such a 
construction would seem to me to be equally "fuzzy", which is to say 
as fuzzy as our definitions of "describing" or "describes".

I would not suggest that we adopt any such relations from external 
vocabularies for exactly this same need for flexibility through 
imprecision, just as we have not adopted terms from external 
vocabularies for the motivations.
