Given that P106_is_composed_of and P148_has_component (and their inverses)
are transitive,
shouldn't P9_consists_of and P46_is_composed_of (and their inverses) also be
transitive?
Isn't this an inconsistency in ECRM?

Non-transitive variants are useful to analyze the immediate parts, 
and this can be obtained by asking an RDF repository to return explicit (not
inferred) facts.
