you raised an issue which was captured in



The grammar does not permit the use of an ID attribute to assign a URI to 
the reification of a statement where the object of the statement is 
specified by an rdf:resource attribute.

As recorded in


the RDFCore WG has decided:
    <foo:bar rdf:ID="foo" rdf:resource="bar"/>

Is legal.

Note:  In this case the rdf:ID will identify the reification of the statememt.

Please could you respond to this message, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org 
indicating whether this is an acceptable resolution of this issue.
