What I want to do is to define mappings between two taxonomies to improve
sreach for some web documents. Whan I have mappings between a class (A) and
a union of other classes ( B,C,D) it is OK i one direction, i.e. when one
searches for A. In that case I can get all instances annotated with B, C,
and D as well. However, when one serach for C wheather I can get him any
instances of A or not...
