That's a nice comparison of approaches!  Thanks for bringing that paper 
to our attention!  Two other thoughts come to mind:

  - Standardization of n-ary relations could also help address this 
problem, because it would allow tools to automatically recognize and 
better support them, such as with convenient syntactic sugar.

  - Automatic transparent conversion between different representations 
could also help, so that a representation that is most convenient in one 
context could be viewed and used differently in another context.

However, these topics may be better suited to some other forum, since 
they are much broader than RDF*.
