Yes, it’s questionable whether GF_Feature should be considered a “Spatial Object”. In ISO 19109, it’s a real-world target of discourse, that can have properties, including one or more geometric model representations. I’m tending towards making GF_Feature an owl:Thing, and leaving GM_Object as a SpatialObject.
