Bradley,

Are you willing to make an RDF dump with URIs grounded in your 
namespace? Once this is done, like DBpedia, NeuroCommons, and Bio2RDF we 
could create mirrors (OpenLink hosted and EC2 AMIs for personal and 
service specific use) that make appropriate owl:sameAs links.

All that is required in an RDF dump on your part.
