Re: [TF-PP] Zero-length paths (ACTION-251)

Hm, yes. The problem is that these URIs do not have any meaning in
simple interpretations. Under RDFS semantics, you could argue that
rdfs:subPropertyOf is a relation over all properties, so anything that
is of type rdf:Property should be contained in the relations (if :p is
a property, then (:p, :p) is in the reflexive relation), but that
doesn't help standard SPARQL...
