Dear OWL mailing list,
In a current project, we take an approach to semantic modelling based on reified relations only. In that context, I am looking for ways of using reified relations in OWL. I am aware of the ways of mimicking reified relations proposed in http://www.w3.org/TR/swbp-n-aryRelations/, but these yield awkward models. Also, such mimicking takes away the graphical visualisations we need, as these tend (as in Protégé) to visualise the subtyping hierarchy only, not the relations (properties). In our case, subtyping is refrained from/not interesting.
Am I overlooking something. Can anybody point me to more natural ways of modelling and graphically representing reified relations with OWL?
I'd be grateful for your suggestions.
Best regards!
