I object.

I don't think the WG can presume an opinion of the “broader community.”

The concerns are Mark's own, not those of the broader community.

Mark's concerns about “semantical correctness” are unfounded. The  
proposal to use a single triple for expressing term mappings is  
absolutely in line with RDF Semantics -- see [1], which answers all  
points raised.

If Mark disagrees with this, then I would like the WG to present a  
rejection that is based on what's actually stated in the RDF Semantics  
document [2], rather than based on some imaginary RDF Semantics  
boogeyman.

There was a proposal that addresses this risk, by defining the notion  
of a "profile graph" [3].

Best,
Richard
