this assertion is an unfounded generalization.
"has not been specified" does not have the same consequences as "do not know", especially in the sense of "cannot know", which underlies the discussion in this thread.

which leaves this reader disappointedly with the impression that the discussion evidently ignores (3.8).

(which impression agrees with his comprehension of the rdf-star deliberations, in general.)

yes, absent a definition for dataset construction, there is no way to interpret the chronology example.
post-3.8, why does that matter?
