The element is a means for grouping together synsets belonging to different monolingual wordnets and sharing the same equivalence relation to a pivot synset, which by convention is an English one.
This is a compact way of encoding correspondences among wordnets, avoiding to have several languageX-to English single correspondences.
For instance, suppose you have the following situation (Synset IDs are made up):
Italian synset ita-16-1251-n, Spanish synset spa-30-09686541-n and Chinese synset zho-30-05231501-n all map onto English WordNet eng-30-13480848-n by means
of an eq_synonym relation.
We could represent this situation with several SenseAxis for each language pair:

The representation we propose, instead, is the following one:

As the element is used for expressing interlingual correspondences, it will not apply to representation of English WordNet. Mapping between different English WordNet versions are to be represented by means of the element (see thread about this topic).
