I favour AgentType if we decide to use a metaclass that is a direct subclass
of Classifier (i.e. not a subclass of Class).  Otherwise, AgentClass would
be appropriate.

I also think that we should start developing a metamodel in which the agent
type metaclass *is* a new subclass of Classifier.  If we later discover that
it really can fit under Class then we can refactor the metamodel.
