Hi Folks,

Consider this definition of SLR:

<owl:Class rdf:ID="SLR">
     <owl:intersectionOf rdf:parseType="Collection">
          <owl:Class rdf:about="#Camera"/>
          <owl:Restriction>
                <owl:onProperty rdf:resource="#viewFinder"/>
                <owl:hasValue rdf:resource="#ThroughTheLens"/>
          </owl:Restriction>
     </owl:intersectionOf>
</owl:Class>

How would you characterize the relationship between SLR and Camera, e.g,

   "SLR is a Camera"
or
   "SLR is a subclass of Camera"

or something else?  

Stated another way, if an application "consults" the Camera Ontology:

   "What's the relationship between SLR and Camera?"

What would you expect as the reply?  /Roger
