Legacy Issue Number: 10828
Source: International Business Machines ( Andreas Maier)
In the Superstructure spec 2.1.1, in figure 7.14, the "Type"
metaclass is shown right below the "PackageableElement" metaclass,
but without any inheritance arrow between them. This is not wrong,
since a class diagram is not obliged to show all existing
However, it would ease the understanding and be consistent if in this
case, the inheritance arrow between these two metaclasses was shown
in that figure.

Disposition: Resolved — UML 2.1.2
Discussion: This strikes me as a matter of taste; someone else might object to the generalization being shown in this diagram since it would clutter the diagram. Disposition: Closed, no change
