Let's not mix a mechanism for preserving ordered list with one for basic notions of meronomy (part-whole relationships). A list of parts can be ordered or unordered. An ordered list can reflect part-whole relationships or not. These are different perspectives.
Of course, depending on the notion of parthood, elements in a list are parts of the list (or not), but this is not the important aspect here.

> Jarno, you could express them that way...BUT we need to keep them separate since they handle 2 different kinds of uses...ItemList (editorialized list of things) and hasPart (things being a part of something, like a collection)   In other words...An ITEM IN A LIST does not equal An ITEM IN A COLLECTION.  2 different Types.
