""B.B. King" could be a MusicGroup....if you take the meaning of "B.B.
King" to really refer to "B.B. King and his band".  2 different strings, 2
different semantic meanings.

so... NO.  Not sameAs...in my book... but there is no Wikipedia.org URL for
the entity of "B.B. King and his band (assembled as the 2013/2014 touring
Music Group"... but there could be, if you made that topic page. ;-)

Clear as mud... I know.... what is really needed and what we lack ?   the
idea of an "embedded entity" in any particular string.... which is not the
same as "relatedTo".

Sometimes you really just want to say... The entity "B.B. King" (the guy)
as a Performer is "embedded" or "included" in THIS entity called "B.B. King
and his band".

We need something to express that ... long term.
