C1 owl:equivalentClass rdf:Bag would have the same effect as the
subClassOf going in both directions.

C1 owl:sameAs rdf:Bag would have the effect that *all* triples that are
true about rdf:Bag are true about C1, which is different (with
owl:equivalentClass, basically only the rdf:type triples in which
C1/rdf:Bag are the object will be the same) (and a few others, like
subClassOf triples, and triples with a property that is a subproperty of
rdf:type, but that's like nitpicking ;) ).
