This is for sure. It is certainly not OWL's fault that its practitioners seem to also to believe, as the father's of UML seem to have, that human creations, like cars and wine and securities, based on people imagining combinations of features, and so putting new tires on their car, or adding loan features to a checking account, can be described with the same kinds of taxonomies, based on biological inheritance, as plants and animals. |
Just to continue the rant on a different subject, I add that UML wants to suggest that when people say that red is a color, they are ***speaking a different language** (a metalanguage, no less!) than when the say the balloon is red, and that UML tries to even have different languages, and even different WORDS, for talking about balloons (or signals), (which are "objects)", and being a balloon (or a message) (which are "classes"!) But, as far as I can see, the actual users of UML don't have to pay overly much attention to this silliness.
