Support.

Despite Ian's assertion this issue is orthogonal to classes-as-instances.

If classes cannot be instances then certain graphs are ill-formed 
because they violate that rule. equivalentTo provides one way to 
construct such graphs, but then so does rdf:type.

<foo> rdf:type <foo> .

or

<foo> rdf:type <bar> .
<foo> owl:equivalentTo <bar> .
