I understand that current RDF does not allow subjects to be literals. This
is acceptable as a response at this stage, because of the damage to the RDF
syntax to try to fix it.

I don't understand this "damage" to syntax.  What are the problems with just
using something like "rdf:aboutLiteral" instead of "rdf:about" where the
subject is a literal?   I gather that there is no problems with the
semantics of using literals for subjects.
