 I was saying that an event that follows a recipe/plan is an instance of
that recipe/plan. The URI for a plan can be used two ways in OWL 2: as an
individual (the description of the plan, such as components, parameters,
whatnot), and as a class (defining members of the set, formally defining
what is used in a plan).

Note: I find myself avoiding saying recipe because, while it's specific, it
just doesn't sound right. Plan might be specific enough while covering other
usages that recipe normally wouldn't be used for.
