I wondered whether you were serious:-) But, in case you are, the answer is no. What I meant is that

  <div about="#A" rel="sameAs" resource="#B"/>

would yield

<#A> owl:sameAs <#B>

because the THAT_DEFAULT_PROFILE would include (among other)

[ rdfa:term "sameAs"; rdfa:uri "http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#sameAs" ]

and, in fact, if this is a default, this means that

  <div about="#A" rel="sameAs" resource="#B"/>

is enough without the surrounding <div>

(I am not saying yet whether we _should_ do it, it is just an idea...)
