TITLE:		should OWL provide synonyms for RDF and RDFS objects
DESCRIPTION:    The DAML+OIL official definition contains 12 sameXxxAs
		statements that provide daml: synonyms for 12 resources
		that are part of RDF or RDFS.  This is probably a bad idea
		that should not be repeated in OWL as it can lead to
		confusion as to what comes from where, particularly as not
		all RDF and RDFS built-in resources are so treated, and at
		least one ``local name'', Class, is used in both RDFS and
		OWL.
