But that does not mean using `uid`, though my reaction is not coming from any practice in ODRL rather the general way vocabularies are used. The pattern of such simple blank node structures (David Booth referred to these as [“Well behaved RDF”]( is widespread. Also, in terms of description logic, if the predicate in use can be defined as uniquely identifying, e.g., a person, then the implicit identification of the node via the usage of that predicate is also perfectly fine. All this for saying that _requiring_ the presence of ID is way too restrictive for my taste...
