We do not have such a requirement.  The requirement we have is to be 
able to express, eg:

  One of the subjects of this News story is represented by URI-1

  One of the genres of this News story is represented by URI-2

  One of the creators of this News story is represented by URI-3

  One of the Descriptions of this News story has the role 
  represented by URI-4
