quoting is not higher-order

The RDF spec says:

	In addition to making statements about Web resources,
	RDF can be used for making statements about other RDF
	statements; we will refer to these as higher-order statements.


That's kinda bogus. reification doesn't make RDF higher-order;

Where RDF leaves first order is in its ability
to express statements like "less-than is transitive".
