I'm finally figuring out something that has been very confusing to me in the diagrams, so this example has helped in that way, thanks. In the diagram in "Figure 3" here it shows a box for ProfileY that has 2 resources, RS2 & RS3. Those link to a single Resource Descriptor "box" representing the class. I think this mixes instance data and the data model rather oddly.  For diagrams representing instance data  either one could 

1. not include the type declaration "boxes", since they make kind of a mess of the diagram
1. use a different kind of diagram that combines the type and the "thing" in a single box

Having the classes represented separately from the members of the classes when illustrating instance data is what I find confusing - it mixes "things" and "the classes those things are classes of" as if they exist separately, and they do not.
