An additional point is that OWL (and RDF) is essentially declarative, so
there isn't an procedural tie between classes and properties like goto. More
like ravioli than spaghetti.
You are right it is not procedural. I was using the "goto effect" syndrome
from the usability perspective not from the process thread perspective. For
a machine, nothing is wrong about a goto. For a human being, it reduces
readability and therefore increases the probability of errors. This effect
has been documented - if my memory is good - by Ben Schnederman in his book
"software psychology" in 1980. Ravioli is the perfect image for a class
definition as done in several object oriented language.
