Name equivalence would surely be "Fred" = "Fred", surely this is about the
resources being equivalent "Fred Jones" = "Fred S. Jones"

<- 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?
