In today's teleconference, you mentioned the benefit of being able to
visualize the triples and referred to this presentation with RDF graphs
as an example:


The thing that bothers me about RDF graphs is that they give the
impression that the model is completely ad hoc.


Using the "Under the hood" slide, I create a UML class diagram variant
that I think reveals this example's (implied) model more clearly (see
the attached diagram).


Another example can be found in my "Bridging OWL and UML" use case:


I've started capturing as many OWL ontologies in UML as I can, which
makes them very easy to work with.
