RE: [higgins-dev] Higgins Ontology Version

Paul,
 
Thinking more about the new ontology, I'm not understanding how a CP would build it's own ontology where it subclasses DigitalSubject with something like a Person class where that Person class is:
- Required to have an attribute statement which has a "bloodType" value
- Allowed to have an attribute statement which has a "eyeColor" value
- Disallowed from having attribute statements containing other values
(note that this is basically the type of thing an LDAP schema does -- defines classes and the required/optional attributes they include)
 
I think any subclass of DigitalSubject is allowed to have a hasAttributeStatement property. Where the range of hasAttributeProperty is AttributeStatement, I don't know how one would place restrictions on that (i.e. say that hasAttributeProperty for a person may only be in the range of something like bloodTypeAttributeStatement or eyeColorAttributeStatement.
 
It's likely that I'm just confused.
