|E55-CIDOC - This class comprises arbitrary concepts (universals) and provides a mechanism for organising them into a hierarchy. This hierarchy is intended to duplicate the names of all the classes present in the model. This allows additional refinement, through subtyping, of those classes which do not require further analysis of their formal properties, but which nonetheless represent typological distinctions important to a given user group.
++Philosurfical: basically type is used to provide classifications which don't find a better place in the ontology
