Yes, this makes sense. Thanks, Aaron.
But now I am back to my original confusion:

<daml:Class rdf:ID="Car"/>
<daml:Class rdf:ID="Person"/>
<daml:Disjoint rdf:parseType="daml:collection">
  <daml:Class rdf:about="#Car"/>
  <daml:Class rdf:about="#Person"/>
</daml:Disjoint>

You originally said that "rdf:about" is used here to denote object versus
subject.
And yet in the triples both <#Car> and <#Person> are subjects.
What am I missing?

Thanks,


--Nikita.
