What does separately mean?

I love, for instance, the movement of RDFa into iPlayer, e.g.:
http://www.w3.org/2007/08/pyRdfa/extract?format=turtle&uri=http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01ptd0h

But, Nick's dump of BBC Music only has a limited linkset, so I don't 
know that*:
<http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/2df30b6c-997d-4c3f-abb5-5e0d6317ea57#artist> 
owl:sameAs 
<http://musicbrainz.org/artist/2df30b6c-997d-4c3f-abb5-5e0d6317ea57#_>

(A fairly easy URI manipulation, but that means nothing to Linked Data)

If you need to mint your own schemes, could the sameAs links not be 
carried in the graph from resolving your URIs?

* At least I think she's not included (I didn't check). I was hoping 
that the new Big Boi/Little Dragon collaboration would be a good 
example, but that's listed as:
<http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0140gr4#segment> a po:MusicSegment ;
      dc:title "Descending"@en-GB ;
      mo:performer
          [ a mo:MusicArtist ;
              foaf:name "Big Boi and Little Dragon"@en-GB
          ] ;

Wasn't the BBC Music Reviews policy that things missing from MusicBrainz 
would be added? Has that changed?
