Useful reasoning :-)? I just meant that there are a few things you know from
a statement like:

<a> <b> <c>.

Such as:
<a> is a resource
<b> is a property (and a resource)
<c> is a resource

But can your really do much with that information? A little more information
(e.g. <b> rdfs:domain <d>) might allow you to infer something more useful.
