Looking good, Jean-Pierre.

However such an Event specialisation could be also be used in a book/journal
publishing context.  So the descriptive text, to prevent confusion for other
event based extensions, could read something like:

a PublicationEvent corresponds indifferently to the event of publication for
a CreativeWork of any type e.g. a broadcast
 event, an on-demand event, a book/journal publication, via a variety of
delivery media

In which case I would suggest the Œfreeš boolean may well reside better at
the inheriting class level.
