I earlier listed as many of the "approximate" matching predicates I 
could find [1], many with explanations. The UMBEL vocabulary [2], which 
also relies in part on SKOS, also has many designed approximate predicates.

Google Scholar searches on "sameas" will also turn up many academic 

Thanks, Mike
