arises if someone other than OCLC (?) asserts something
about a VIAF URI.
So, for example
(and, please note, I’ve used a different URI, because, well,
the one your provided is problematic for my purpose here),
what if /I/ asserted:
skos:note “He smelled very badly, all the time.”
And yet, OCLC does make statements about id.loc.gov "things" in the
WorldCat schema.org data:
a schema:Intangible ;
schema:name "Mathematical statistics."@en .
a schema:Place ;
dcterms:identifier "cau" .
a schema:Intangible .
I don't think we can generally say that linked data creators do or
should avoid making statements using a subject not minted by them,
especially since any non-literal object can be the subject of
another statement. I may want to say:
<http://dewey.info/class/519/> skos:label "Statistics"@en
The use of dewey.info does not imply that the statement was issued
by the owners of dewey.info. That's why we need provenance for
statements and, as explained elsewhere in this thread, the URI does
not provide that.
I looked for but could not find stats on subject usage in LOD, but
there is massive re-use of properties in the LOD space minted by
third parties, as noted in the Linked Open Vocabulary statistics.
 BIBFRAME has eschewed this, but that seems not to be a problem

On the surface
it looks like VIAF/OCLC said Raphael smelled badly, all the
time because, provenance-wise, the domain tracks back to
OCLC. In reality, I said it, but you cannot tell.
If we use
global URIs, and additional statements are made against
those, then something like this could happen.

show the provenance is VIAF? What’s complex about this?
