Is it the same triple if two models is exactly the same? Is it the
same tirple if both triples have an equal literal? If yo reifie a
triple in one model; does that count as a reification of identical
triples in other models.

I think that it is the answer to this that should guide in the
question of wether to choose triple URIs based on the model or not.

I argued in another message [1] that you maby would like to let the
triples have identical URI's if they is composed of only URIs, but
diffrent URIs if they have a literal, because that literal could maby
change. And it is not always the best thing to change the triple URI
if the literal changes [2].
