>> in one of your earlier drafts there used to be the concept of "producer/consumer" and "resource". In the newer versions the "support" stereotype has been introduced. How does "support" relate to "producer/consumer"? Do we keep the notion of directed associations whereas a "resource" is "produced" and "consumed"?
