I will fix the URIs.. I believe the equivalenceClass assertions were  
added in by someone at OpenLink (I just sent the raw file with the  
conditional probabilities for each pair of types that were above the . 
80 threshold).  So can whoever uploaded the file fix the property to  
what Tim suggested?
Thanks!
