All statements can be viewed as reified statements.

I recently came to insight that fact and non-fact statements can be
handled by the model.  Since all statements belongs to one (or more)
models, we can have trusted and nontrusted models.  A reified
statement with a unknown stater will be placed in a 'empty' model.

Things can be said about a model in the same manner that they can be
said about separate statements.  Some of the statements about the
model could be made distributed over the statements.

Wraf uses a lot of 'dynamic' properties.  They can be inferred from
schemas, calculated, providing extra metadata, be translations or
alternative representations, or anything returned from a method call.
