I think you'd have to make a distinction between the denotation
of the URIs and their function within the web context. I.e.
you'd need to probably reify the URIs and talk about the
URIs themselves rather than about the resources denoted. E.g.

   <uri:http://web4.w3.org/> :mirrors <uri:http://www.w3.org> .

presuming that the HTTP context is inherent in the
:mirrors property.

Which states that the first URI behaves the same as the
second URI insofar as resolution to representations is
