Dear all,

The proposed, revised scope note, copied mostly from the issue which I
believe fulfils the requests from last SIG meeting's discussion, but please
let me know if any additional edits are needed:

This property establishes the relationship between an E36 Visual Item and
an E55 Type that represents the class of an entity which it visually
represents.  This property is used when the identity of the specific entity
being represented is unknown or unidentified beyond the content of the E36
Visual Item. Pxx represents entity of type is a shortcut of the more fully
developed path from the domain E36 Visual Item through P138 represents, E1
Entity, P2 has type, to the range E55 Type.

This property is most useful when there is an entity of some type being
depicted that is not identifiable as any particular individual, but is
clearly of a particular type. The image carried by a photograph of an
unknown garden would depict many flowers, but none of which are known as
entities beyond the photograph. Conversely, if there isn't an individual
that could fill the role of the E1 Entity in the fully developed path, then
this property is not appropriate, and a direct relationship of P138
represents from the E36 Visual Item to the E55 Type is recommended.

The manner or mode of the representation can be captured using Pxx.1 mode
of representation.


    The photograph’s visual content (E36) represents an entity of type
beach (E55)

    The sculpture’s visual content (E36) represents an entity of type woman

    The landscape painting’s image content (E36) represents an entity of
type field (E55) in the manner of background (E55)
