FWIW - There is plenty of precedent using open arrow-heads for sub-classes. See 

- https://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-org/
- https://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-data-cube/
- https://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-dqv/

And also the standard IDEs (TopBraid, Protege visualization plugins). 

I certainly see where you are coming from arguing for UML Substitution, but it is not widely known outside UML circles, the visual notation is messy (dashed connector with a stereotype), and it risks making the UML connection even stronger, so I'm disinclined to change horses.
