I made the mistake of not reading the whole thread before wading in.

Peter shows how sameClassAs (and by analogy samePropertyAs) are 
plausibly weaker statements.

I don't think we should burden the typical user with this.
The advanced user for whom the distinction between sameClassAs and 
equivalentTo (over classes) is important can use two subClassOf triples.


Perhaps all I am arguing is that sameBlankAs is not in OWL Lite.
