I don't see how it is either omtological or indecomposable. The inference is valid regardless of how you model "=".

Is that true? I'd buy the claim that for most mathematicians it is not relevant to their sphere of interest.

Isn't that a special case of a more general axiom schema? For any propositional function P of two variables,  (x=y > Az(P)z,x) >> P(z,y))
