[sc34wg3] The TMRM and the OWL....

OWL lets you state 'this property is an SIDP'....did anybody know this?
"For example, if a property such as SocialSecurityNumber is an
owl:InverseFunctionalProperty, then two separate individuals could be
inferred to be identical based on having the same value of that
property. When individuals are determined to be the same by such
means, information about them from different sources can be merged. "

Effectively, this provides for non-URI identifiers (keys) in OWL-
