whoops, mixed up X's and Y's

actually

:Z daml:subClassOf [ daml:complementOf :Y ]
:Z daml:subClassOf :X

if you want to sat :X notSubClassOf :Y

then can you say something similar to

:Z daml:subClassOf [ daml:complementOf :X ]
:Z daml:subClassOf :Y

in other words, there exists a class Z which is a subClassOf
Y and a subClassOf the complement of X

This way you know there is at least one little part of Y that's
not in X

guess you need to add somehow that Z is not daml:Nothing
(is that assumed??)

I can imagine X and Y to be 'overlapping' classes such as
   ------
  |X     |
  |    ------
  |   |  |   |
   ------    |
      |     Y|
       ------
and X is not a subclass of Y
so...
