OlafNoppens about Inverse n-ary relationship (Revision ID: n-ary relationship?oldid=10101 10101)

Overall suggestion (score): 1 - needs minor revision

Review Summary: This pattern is an extension of the W3C n-ary relationship in that a n-ary realtionship can be summarized in a simple relationship between two individuals. I can image that querying a knowledge base is easier - however, I encourage the author to clarify and explain how this aim is achieved (give an example, etc.). However, there is one problem with the pattern and that's the name: the pattern does not describe an inverse n-ary relationship but a special kind of it where only two distinguished individuals are considered with "additional, and probably optional, argument".
Reviewer Confidence: high
Problems: There are two problems: first, it's the name as mentioned above, second I would recommend to use the same notation as in the W3C n-ary relationship which is cited. This would make the difference and the understanding clearer.
Community Relevance: good
Relation to Best Practices: good
Relations to Other Patterns: Unfortunately the n-ary relationship is not available on
Overall Understandability:
Clear Problem Description:
Clear Relevance and Consequences:
Clear Figures and Illustrations:
Missing Information: Example in OWL
