Hi James,

I think that multiple conversations are touching the very issue: it's 
connecting
to the discussion on identifiers.

In his introduction, Paolo has defined these relations as being
between two records (i.e. two descriptions).  However, later on, the
same terminology is no longer used.

I can rationalize alternateOf as saying that "e1 and e2 refer to the same thing", which is almost what Luc wrote, but to rationalize specializationOf I need e1 and e2 to refer to descriptions, not things themselves.  (I think it is this distinction that is one of the root causes of confusion here.)
