And Dublin Core has dcterms:relation [1]

Label: A related resource

Comment: Recommended best practice is to identify the related resource 
by means of a string conforming to a formal identification system.


Note: This term is intended to be used with non-literal values as 
defined in the DCMI Abstract Model 
(http://dublincore.org/documents/abstract-model/). As of December 2007, 
the DCMI Usage Board is seeking a way to express this intention with a 
formal range declaration.

Which is about as close as this venerable technology-neutral body can 
come to saying "it's designed to point from one RDF resource to another 
that is in some way related ;-) "
