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.
