- Vlado raised teh question at SemanticWeb Answers, see live discussion at
[http://answers.semanticweb.com/questions/16198/skosexactmatch-vs-owlsameas]
- but (of course) this is not the first time such questions have been raised. A lot of related fundamental discussions took place during the conception of SKOS, from 2004 to about 2010.

The advice on SemanticWeb Answers boils down to this:
- Don't use skos:Concept ("terms") in business data, use other URIs ("entities") that are amenable to sameAs and are foaf:focus of the respectiev terms
- Or else, implement extra rules that propagate business relations across skos:exactMatch.
