Re: How to assert equivalence of URIs ?

Hi Andrea and all,

  as  URIs  are  a cornerstone of RDF and then in turn of the ontology
  languages layered on RDF, it would make sense to me, to have an
     rdfe:sameAs
  property in the yet-to-be-defined rdf-extensions namespace.
  The  semantics  of  this  could  be  that  a tool processing data is
  allowed to normalise all URIs to ONE of the given rdfe:sameAs URIs.
  Maybe even state a preferred URI:
    rdf:mainURI
  to which we normalise.

  This  is similar to the PSI-proposal [2] from Steve Pepper, presented at
  the IRW2006 [1].
