Is there a general principle to guide whether it's better to have finer-grained properties, or finer-grained classes and subclasses? A similar question has come up at Project chat#Items for multi-intersection. Scs (talk) 12:13, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose the values proposed for this property are all "types of ship", which should be used with instance of (P31) (and mostly are, for the given examples). If there were items for the "rigging" itself that was somehow independent of ship type maybe this would make sense, but "ship type" and "rigging", at least for sailing ships, seem to be closely tied so I don't think there is a case for this property at all right now.
