BS: If we have a sentence in a biology textbook,
    say "blood cells are non-nucleated", then is
    this about cells in reality (as I, and I guess
    common sense, would assume) or about cells in
    the biology model?

JA: If by "about" we mean something like "applies to" or "true of",
    is there any harm in saying that the sentences are about both?
