Class / Predicate NameUseDeleteNotes
3
E1_CRM_Entity00Abstract class
4
E10_Transfer_of_Custody10
5
E11_Modification10
6
E12_Production10
7
E13_Attribute_Assignment10
8
E14_Condition_Assessment01
E14-17 should instead be E13 + P2 to a vocabulary term for type of assignment
9
E15_Identifier_Assignment01
10
E16_Measurement01
11
E17_Type_Assignment01
12
E18_Physical_Thing00Abstract parent of Feature and Thing
13
E19_Physical_Object10N.B. E19 is used in place of Collection for all sets of objects.
14
E2_Temporal_Entity00Abstract class
15
E20_Biological_Object00Abstract class
16
E21_Person10
17
E22_Man-Made_Object10
18
E24_Physical_Man-Made_Thing00Abstract class
19
E25_Man-Made_Feature10-- this is needed to be part of a MMO
20
E26_Physical_Feature00-- this is for things like arches in nature
21
E27_Site01No relationships beyond its parent class
22
E28_Conceptual_Object00Abstract class
23
E29_Design_or_Procedure00No current use cases
24
E3_Condition_State00
Probably useless, compared to S16, and too complex compared to Modification
25
E30_Right10
26
E31_Document01No useful distinguishing features beyond Information Object?
27
E32_Authority_Document01No useful distinguishing features beyond Information Object?
28
E33_Linguistic_Object10
29
E34_Inscription01Unnecessarily specific -- just use E33
30
E35_Title01Just another Appellation with a P2 has_type of Title
31
E36_Visual_Item10
32
E37_Mark01Unnecessarily specific. The addition of Info Object adds no relationships
33
E38_Image01Actually not useful beyond Visual Item??
34
E39_Actor10
35
E4_Period10
36
E40_Legal_Body01
Use Group. As Group is an Actor that can act, the distinction is meaningless
37
E41_Appellation10
38
E42_Identifier10
39
E44_Place_Appellation01
E44-E49 have no additional semantics beyond trivially inferable from domain
40
E45_Address01... or from a P2 on the appellation resource
41
E46_Section_Definition01
42
E47_Spatial_Coordinates01
43
E48_Place_Name01
44
E49_Time_Appellation01
45
E5_Event10
46
E50_Date01Yet another appellation
47
E51_Contact_Point01
48
E52_Time-Span10
49
E53_Place10
50
E54_Dimension10
51
E55_Type10
52
E56_Language10For recording the language of a resource without a transcribed value
53
E57_Material10
54
E58_Measurement_Unit10
55
E59_Primitive_Value00LOD should use rdfs:Literal
56
E6_Destruction10
57
E60_Number00LOD should use xsd:integer
58
E61_Time_Primitive00LOD should use xsd:dateTime
59
E62_String00LOD should use xsd:string
60
E63_Beginning_of_Existence10
61
E64_End_of_Existence10
62
E65_Creation10N.B. for conceptual things, not physical things
63
E66_Formation00Just use E63
64
E67_Birth00Just use E63 -- unless parentage is needed, and then it's still not ideal
65
E68_Dissolution00Just use E64
66
E69_Death00Just use E64
67
E7_Activity10
68
E70_Thing00Abstract class
69
E71_Man-Made_Thing00Abstract class
70
E72_Legal_Object00Abstract class
71

72
E74_Group10
73
E75_Conceptual_Object_Appellation01
74
E77_Persistent_Item00Abstract class
75
E78_Curated_Holding00
The requirement for a collection plan is too heavy a burden. Also note name change is VERY BAD in RDF, where E78_Collection is a different class from E78_Curated_Holding :(
76
E79_Part_Addition00No use cases
77
E8_Acquisition10
78
E80_Part_Removal00No use cases
79
E81_Transformation00No use cases
80
E82_Actor_Appellation01
81
E83_Type_Creation01Non types cannot be based on something? E65/E83 distinction is a concern
82
E84_Information_Carrier01No value beyond E22
83
E85_Joining00No use cases
84
E86_Leaving00No use cases
85
E87_Curation_Activity00Use of E78 is too burdensome, making E87 irrelevant
86
E89_Propositional_Object00Abstract class
87
E9_Move00No use cases
88
E90_Symbolic_Object00Abstract class
89
E92_Spacetime_Volume00Abstract class
90
E93_Presence00No use cases
91
E94_Space_Primitive00LOD should use real data types

E95_Spacetime_Primitive00LOD should use real data types
93
E96_Purchase10
94
E97_Monetary_Amount10
95
E98_Currency10
96
E99_Product_Type00No use cases, overly specific use of E55
