Addendum: 
"is" should have been included in my basic MKR list.

<rdf:Property  mkr:is>
    <owl:sameAs>   owl:sameAs </owl:sameAs>
    <rdfs:label>   is         </rdfs:label>
    <rdfs:comment> is identical to, is an alias of </rdfs:comment>
    <rdfs:domain>  owl:Thing </rdfs:domain>
    <rdfs:range>   owl:Thing </rdfs:range>
</rdf:Property>

Note:
MKE detects non-disjoint units and species by checking 
for units which have multiple "primitive" concepts,
and for species that have multiple genus concepts.  
MKE considers this "ambiguity" to be an error, 
but has the ability to process all ambiguities.

P.S. I posted the latest version on my web site
http://rhm.cdepot.net/knowledge/theory/OWL/basicmkr.owl

  The purpose of this note is to clarify the basic
  relations between MKR and OWL.  I have tried to
  express everything in legal OWL statements.

  <rdf:Property  mkr:similarTo>
      <rdfs:label> is similar to </rdfs:label>
      <rdfs:comment> same basic idea, but subtle differences </rdfs:comment>
