My email client didn't properly update in time, so I missed your take.
Which provides an interesting contrast regarding nesting isPartOf (which,
being conceptually transitive, makes your example logical, albeit as you
say, lacking some connections). You also touch on the domain of issueNumber
and volumeNumber (I take it you meant domainIncludes?), where as you might
remember I wasn't opposed to more gritty and conflational approaches (not
necessarily *for* that, but I can tolerate it when precision gets in the
way of something useful). :)
