It's listed but indeed not modeled:

<rdf:Property rdf:about="http://www.w3.org/ns/openannotation/core/equivalent">
<rdfs:comment>The subject and object resources of the oa:equivalent
relationship represent the same resource, but potentially have
different metadata such as generator, generated and serialization
format. oa:equivalent is a symmetrical relationship; if A
oa:equivalent B, then it is also true that B oa:equivalent A.
<rdfs:isDefinedBy rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/ns/openannotation/core/"/>

I'm not sure *how* it would be modeled though.

A suggestion was raised to get rid of equivalent and recommend either
skos:exactMatch or skos:closeMatch.  How do people feel about these
three options?
