More and more I have the impression that a distinction between
authorities (I have to admit that I don't fully understand the
concept, there seems to be a cultural gap) and identifiers does
not make much sense.

If we just had a class bf:Identification (paralleling your previous
reasoning to turn bf:Contributor in bf:Contribution) then we
can interpret any authority control document as belonging to
that class. Combine that with the observeation that most authority
<s>control documents</s> records indeed contain a mention of their
string identifier as well as strings for authorized headings and
also express the RWO they describe as an URI we're probably done
(bf:Identification instances could fill the blanks, i.e.
noting the scheme the object belongs to: It seems that not all
RDF representations of authority records make this explicit).
