URI Identifier Use Case 2: "I want to describe the origins, provenance, etc. of a URI (in a similar way to other forms of identifier)". This use case is not supported by simple owl:sameAs suggestion. The problem is how to talk about URIs because in RDF they aren't first class citizens, they are simply ways to talk about resources.

URIs  and IRIs can be represented as values of type xsd:anyURI.   For example 

:fred :hasHomePage "http://www.ibiblio.org/fred2.0/"^^xsd:anyURI . 

Note that the value is quoted, and is not resolved relative to any prefix or base.
