I don't think that would do it. The views would not provide two 
equivalent names for one object. And I actually do not want to have two 
different presentations, only two equivalent names.
 From my first mail::

   'Equivalent' meaning you should be able to access it with
   scheme:host/path/name1 and scheme:host/path/name2 without any
   differences, and it should be in the catalog as only one object

A practical example: A text that describes a book.
I want to link to it as
  - http:/host/TheBookAboutLifeTheUniverseAndEverything
  - and http:/host/HinzKunzETAL2004
