Legacy Issue Number: 1515
Summary: In section 5.20.1, a "reflexive association" is defined as an association
from a class to itself. This is consistent with the terminology as
generally used in the field.
However, in section 5.20.2, a reflexive association appears to be defined
as one that has links from an object to to itself.
This second defintion is not industry standard (including some of the
amigos work), appears to conflict with 5.20.1 and somewhat misapplied. The contingent existence of an
object-to-self link should not be changing the characterization of the
association. A reflexive assocation need not require a reflexive link.
