That revised text looks OK to me.

Dear All,

Since E46 Section Definition has been deprecated, we need to change the scope note of P59:

P59 has section (is located on or within)

Domain:              E18 Physical Thing

Range:                E53 Place

Quantification:   one to many (0,n:0,1)

 Scope note:         This property links an area to the instance of E18 Physical Thing upon which it is found.

 It is typically used when a named E46 Section Definition is not appropriate.

E18 Physical Thing may be subdivided into arbitrary regions.

P59 has section (is located on or within) is a shortcut. If the E53 Place is identified by a Section Definition, a more detailed representation can make use of the fully developed (i.e. indirect) path from E18 Physical Thing through P58 has section definition, E46 Section Definition, P87 is identified by E44 Place Appellation. A Place can only be located on or within one Physical Object.


ยง  HMS Victory (E22) has section HMS Victory section B347.6 (E53)

New Scope note:

"This property links an area, i.e., an instance of E53 Place to the instance of E18 Physical Thing upon which it is found. This area may either be identified by a name, or by a geometry in terms of a coordinate system adapted to the shape of the respective instance of E18 Physical Thing. Typically, names identifying sections of physical objects are composed of the name of a kind of part and the name of the object itself, such as "The poop deck of H.M.S. Victory", which is composed of "poop deck" and "H.M.S. Victory". "
