Hmmm .. I take "equivalentTo" to assert that any two URIs denote the same
thing.  Not as you put it "equivalentTo enables one to assert that any two
resources are equal".   In other words I take it that "equivalentTo" states
a relationship between names, not between the resources they denote.

Have I taken it correctly?
