The person doing the integration of your dataset with some other dataset for
some purpose of *theirs*. The kind of correspondence needed is a function of
the purpose of combining the data.

Ignoring owl:sameAs statements isn't an option?

Not if you have a mixture of owl:sameAs statements you *have* to use and
ones you *can't*. Whereas if you have x:correspondsTo, y:correspondsTo and
z:correspondsTo, it *is* easy to say that y:correspondsTo (but not the other
two) is the same as owl:sameAs.
