Here is my two cents on it.

I think they - English/French expression of pain vs. different meanings of
the word "frequency" - are two different situiations.  IMHO, one concept
should be assigned with one URI.  Pain is "pain", it does not matter how you
yell it out.  So, in this case there should be ONE URI for that concept.  On
the other hand, if two "frequencies" has different meanings, there should be
TWO URIs for expressing them.
