Rather than removing Tim's class from the diagram or ontology,
I suggest making more 'spokes' to account for as many models
as we care to look at it. IAO (which is what I think you're getting
at above) could be another spoke, and AWWW (with nonsense boxes for
'information resource', 'essential characteristic', 'message' and so on)
could be yet another.

For now I prefer being inclusive, and letting nonsense wither, to being
exclusive. But I agree we should review that stance from time to time.
