I’m officially confused?
I was about to write Simon back to suggest that maybe the choice to use the word reflecting in the bf:Instance definition was to acknowledge that the rdf resource isn’t really a material thing; I think we can all agree that no one is ever going to hold a triple in their hand. (In the same way FOAF defines a person, "The
Personclass represents people. Something is a
Personif it is a person.” http://xmlns.com/foaf/spec/#term_Person)
