Can I ask you (or anyone who might know the answer) to clarify why they're called "Assertions"?
I can certainly see them as being…
- a topic
- an index
- or even just "a bucket of triples"
However, based on the English definition of the word "assertion," I don't think I understand their labeling as Assertions.

We also manage assertions. This is one of the reasons why the RDF folk invented RDF Named Graphs -- a bucket of triples with an identifier.
