good question. There could be subproperties. However, in practice as we 
are trying to detect these relationships across several databases and 
millions of samples the underlying individual data models make it 
challenging to detect derived from, so having any confidence and in sub 
properties for existing data is challenging. We are experimenting with 
provenance for derived-from.

Practically I don't think we would be able to supply data using these 
more granular relations with confidence,  so we wouldn't use them, at 
least for BioSamples,
