I am unable to post an open review (There's something amiss with the list) so I will post my review here:

The authors have not considered the awkwardness of RDF semantics. The problem is that RDF reificaiton only works in one direction, i.e. every triple can be reified as an rdf:Statement with rdf:subject rdf:predicate rdf:object (that is, for every triple such a statement exists). However, it does not work in the other direction: the existence of an rdf:Statement does not imply the existence of the triple.

This may certainly cause unexpected behaviour with the proposed pattern. Let alone the fact that the proposed solution brings the ontology in OWL Full which is not ideal for many situations.
