Sorry, I have to dissagree. I cannot imagine even a single case where 
that is true. A transformation can only be applied to a "screenshot" of 
the source data. Also, such an attempt may result in loss of semantic 
info. A transformation may result in a correct mapping between 
ontologies, but will fail in producing implicit statements that would 
result from those mappings after applied with equivalentTo.
