I think the easiest thing would be to define daml:equivalentTo and
rdfs:subClassOf where appropriate. The next best thing is to use log rules
(as in Tim's log:implies) to define the manipulations. More complex stuff
than that has not yet been defined, to my knowledge, so feel free to try it
yourself and report back.
