Are you looking for syntax????  Perhaps it would be easier to understand 
if you did post a few examples of the kinds of alternatives you think 
there are.

How to state simple facts in RDF

In the work of the RDFTM task force the issue of how simple facts are
represented in RDF has come up, since the task force needs to find a
way to express such facts in RDF.

It's probably not clear what I'm talking of here, but examples are
statements like "this case is closed", "this company is bankrupt",
"this article is a draft", and so on.

How do people usually express this in RDF, and what is the "best" way?
The task force thought of several alternatives, but would be
interested to hear what the best practice is, if there is one, and
what individuals think, if there is no best practice.
