The notion of using XMDP to say class name "A" means-the-same-as class name
"B" feel very OWLish[1] as far as assertions of statement equivalence go.
Perhaps you didn't intend it as such, but your profile aliasing proposal
essentially took that one feature out of OWL and represented it in XMDP.

That's what I was referring to.  Apologies, I thought that was obvious and
that you did that on purpose.

equivalent. axiom ::= 'EquivalentClasses(' classID classID { classID } ')'"
