    Summary: Page 45 Dependency lines 2/3 between model elements not instances. Really?
    But A <<uses>>B is a client-server at instance level also, where
    <<uses>> is a stereotyped Dependency. Why is this discrimination between
    class/type versus instance applied here so explicitly. (BTW I have been
    trying to elucidate the connection between Dependency and Association as
    raised in OTUG by Bob Martin and others. My answer is in my JOOP
    column of Feb 98. I have constructed an interesting and progressive metamodel
    for relationships including aggregation-type ones which seems to make overall
    sense).
