I believe that if you propose to represent link between different types of
diagrams, this is because UML accepts it, isn't it?
My second question is more pragmatic: can we use UML 2 gate to this
purpose? My concern is messages or method invocations will be considered for
all the diagrams and they are dependent of a specific class of diagrams, that
is to say they are not defined in the kernel. Am I right? Is it a problem?
