I would actually like to see the linked data community adopt alternateOf in
place of owl:sameAs for their work. It's a reasonable replacement, as
alternateOf is effectively a superproperty of sameAs. If that happens, it
would be the most-used concept from PROV! This is a separate discussion,
but I think it's important to keep this in mind when we discuss it.
