Precisely. Also another advantage is to be able to type the links. For
example I can link or create an association between to frames/objects/row.
That association can even be typed like for instance having the association
"brotherOf" or "allied" or "commercialPartner". Typing association is what
UML is doing but the association types are limited. More power to modeling
domains can be obtained by being able to create custom types as we can
already do with class based programming languages.
