I think 80% is irrelevant here because it's not even the same  
problem.  Profile URIs solve the problem of ambiguous assertions.   
They do not solve the problem of false assertions.  It doesn't matter  
whether or not false assertions is an "80%" problem.  Profile URIs  
simply don't solve that problem.  This is the kind of unfocused  
discussion we can easily avoid by starting with the *problem* rather  
than the solution, i.e. following the process:


We seem to be at the "iterate" stage now with the ambiguity problem,  
and this would be a good time to document the problem with real-world  
examples, which apparently didn't happen the first time through.   
When we can all look at the same real-world examples, it will be  
easier to stay focused on finding the best solution.
