Seems to me that the thing drawn "is a" component of the drawing, not of the
distillation column. The thing drawn represents/signifies a part of the

properties and characteristics of 'the' pump or a physical instance.
Aha! Multiple inheritance. How shall an ontology indicate multiple
interpretants and the conditions for which path to take? (01)
