ISSUE-84 (Conrad): UML diagrams in the Structural Specification are not quite UML

http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/tracker/issues/

Raised by: Conrad Bock
On product: 

The UML diagrams in http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/Syntax are are not
quite UML:

  - Property names on associations should appear on the opposite ends of
    the lines than where they do in the document (where the
    multiplicities are shown).

  - The UML notation for ordered properties is {ordered}, next to the
    property.  No adornment means a set.

  - Optional properties should have a multiplicity, eg, [0..1] or
    [0..*].

  - The dashed, hollow-headed arrows in Figures 3 and4 aren't UML
    notation.

White diamond has no additional semantics in UML than if it is absent.
Diagrams without white diamonde are less likely to be misintepreted.
