Are we going in circles?

Someone suggested that it can be up to the application or schema to
interprete what should be considered statings.

I don't think we can separate the question from the question about
contexts.  Let me give another example.  (*All* the statements here is

 S1: [Bush, won, the election]
 S2: [S1, isTrue, yes]
 S3: [S1, isTrue, yes]
 S4: [S2, model, http://foo]
 S5: [S3, model, http://bar]

S2 and S3 represents the same statement. But their presens in two
diffrent models also makes them two diffrent statings.  We can merge
them, and they will still be two diffrent statings:

 S1: [Bush, won, the election]
 S2: [S1, isTrue, yes]
 S3: [S2, model, http://foo]
 S4: [S2, model, http://bar]

They are statings because we give them that meaning.
