Oh, a representation can itself be a resource and have its own meta-rep.
The trick of using b-nodes is good in this respect: an RDF b-node represents
a non-retrievable (non-addressable) thing-in-the-world.

The same way we agree on a quotation convention such that "'Boston' has six
letters" is reasonable and so is "Boston has six million inhabitants", but
not vice versa.
