The problem I guess is that what is sameAs depends on the context, but I 
don't quite agree that this means we should replace all sameAs statements.

If you don't agree with what e.g. UniProt considers sameAs, your tools 
should allow you to treat these statements as seeAlso (and vice versa)!

P.S.

"When a request is given to the server for a description of the URI, an 
HTTP 303 redirect is issued to one of two locations, depending on the 
accept headers sent by the client. If the requested content is 
application/rdf+xml then the server will generate an RDF description 
detailing the properties of the requested URI [...] However, if the accept 
header is set to text/html then a 303 See Other is returned identifying an 
html description [...]"

Sounds like a good approach ;-)
