Dear All,

The following phrases in the Introduction of the CRM, section Terminology, seem to be very shorthand:

subproperty:
"Some object-oriented languages, such as C++, have no equivalent to the specialization of properties".

BETTER:

"Some object-oriented programming languages, such as C++, do not comprise constructs that allow for expressing  specialization of properties 
into subproperties"

shortcut:
"The CRM allows shortcuts as cases of less detailed knowledge, while preserving in its schema the relationship to the full information."

BETTER:

"The CRM declares shortcuts explicitly as single properties in order to allow the user to describe cases in which he has less detailed 
knowledge than the full data path would need to be described. For each shortcut, the CRM contains in its schema the properties of the full 
data path explaining the shortcut."

PLEASE VOTE
