Yeah, exactly.  This scenario shows why it is so important to make the
distinction that "the data is not the resource", and "RDF statement is
about the resource, not the data".

Of course, sometimes you can treat the data as a resource by assigning
URIs to locations within a document or whatever, but this is not the
norm, and this scenario makes it all the more important to be clear
about the distinction between data and resource, IMO.
