From the definition, it looks as if strictlySameAs is *even more*
strong that owl:sameAs in asserting perfect identity. (I see how it
solves some of the problems of the latter, but not our problem, which
is that we want to say that this URI refers to the same person, not
that the two records should be considered identical.)
Others have also suggested skos:closeMatch or skos:exactMatch as
candidates for this property (although I believe there's an issue with
using SKOS terms out of the context of a full SKOS implementation).
Any other suggestions from the list?
