This might change in the future depnding on how Queries are implemented
:) I'd love that we could use Queries items in «instance of» sand
«subclass of» statements and that we could indeed verify that any
instance of the subclass is also an instance of the superclass with the
help of queries :)
Yes, I agree. The classes could still be more useful than they are now.
A student at TU Dresden, Serge Stratan, is currently working on ways to
improve browsing and inspection of the subclass of/instance of
statements. There are some very curious things in there, but they are
hard to spot without some "non-local" view. I hope that Serge will have
a first public prototype within this month.
