I would also recommend to push back on this, and disagree with Bill, 
this is not an established practice (or at least, I would like to see 
evidence of the contrary), nor a practice to encourage.

Yes, and remember that we are talking about directed graph, and that a 
good practice is to give the direction of the property in its name, thus 
the hasXXX or the isXXXOf pattern.

Why would it be too late? This is last Call. So this is the time. After,
