It is now!

In the description we now talk about "equivalent classes", but it's
not formalized.
Added this to the editor's note in oa:List.

True, and adding the oa:default property to Choice I think is both
useful and helps justify the classes.

So ... I'm not against oa:Choice rdfs:subClassOf rdf:Alt and
oa:Composite rdfs:subClassOf rdf:Bag, but I am against it for
oa/rdf:List (as per previous reasoning).

Other opinions?

Could you write up a paragraph or so for them? Agreed that it would be
good to be clear, and I'm not sure that I would do them justice.

:)  Will fix based on the decision about subclassing Bag and Alt.
