Thank you. I think that viewing the links or interpretations as claims is a good idea.
That gets at what the content provided could be concurrent to a redirect. As claims, one
could annotate these as well.
For scenarios where the link or interpretation itself is a locus of debate, perhaps one
could provide multiple options and utilize HTTP response code 300.

Subject: Re: [Abstract-wikipedia] URL-addressable statements and clusters of statements
I like this idea. In general clear rephrasings are simply their own claims; a good
rephrasing may be pointed to as a "common claim" implied by many other
statements; a statement may imply a number of rephrasings; the link between a
primary-source statement and a common rephrasing is itself a claim; most of these links
will be uncontroversial but for some that link itself is the locus of debate. [see

Hello. The following ideas about URL-addressable statements and clusters of statements
(e.g. paraphrase sets or clusters) are relevant to a recent Wikifact project
ct>, could be relevant to a recent
Wikipragmatica project proposal<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikipragmatica>
and, hopefully, are relevant and interesting to Wikidata and Abstract Wikipedia.
Each statement, claim, or fact could have a URL. Each cluster of paraphrases could have a
Statements, claims, or facts could have URL’s, for instance
Clusters of paraphrases could have URL’s, for instance
The URL for an individual statement, claim, or fact could, while optionally providing
data, redirect to a URL for the paraphrase cluster which contains it. This could
convenience processes of semi-automated, collaborative paraphrasing. That is, in the event
of an erroneous paraphrasing, editors or software tools could edit a redirect page to
re-cluster the individual statement, claim, or fact to an updated cluster of paraphrases.
At the URL for a paraphrase cluster could be a human-editable sequence of explained
annotations about a statement, claim, or fact.
The emergent feature of URL-addressability could convenience Web-based communication about
statements, claims, and facts. End-users would be able to share hyperlinks to
fact-checking articles about individual statements, claims, or facts. This could
facilitate a number of other, related technologies.
Also interestingly, statement patterns could be expressed and these patterns could be
utilized via URL query strings. Nouns or noun phrases could be provided as arguments. That
is, arguments for thematic relations could be provided utilizing Wikidata lexemes and
could represent a set of statements expressing that “Douglas Adams ate an apple.”
