I don't follow you. Can you be more specific? What class relations??

Ah, that is not exactly how the MT handles it. That is, it assumes 
that all this is associated with the datatype, but it describes it 
somewhat differently. The datatype is I(URI),  f is L2V(I(URI)) and C 
is ICEXT(I(URI)). We don't have an explicit name for A in the model

Not sure I follow. The x in the last line of the table in 3.4 is 
I(ddd) for some datatype URI ddd, ie the datatype entity itself, not 
the URI of it. It is assumed to have an L2V value and also a class 
extension which is the value set, ie ICEXT(x) is the range of L2V(x) 
when x is a datatype entity.

Is that clearer?
