I have made amends in my latest email of 1/2 hour ago or so, where I ack that the two relations are not on the same level, i.e.,

alternateOf is about things
specializationOf is about entities

as James suggested

This can be reflected it the text once we agree, as usual

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.)
