This is incredibly messy if we ever support statements that have truly
optional subjects. I don't know what that might be, but all in all I just
don't see the point of trying to "sort of" change the data model. Change it
or not.

I agree. Doesn't a SubjectRef element do this? The cost is pretty minimal
with much less invasiveness than an assertion subject. That just plain
doesn't fit the statement model, IMHO.
