Issue 56: Objects which are typical for a class
Some objects give rise to the creation of a new class. They are prototypes for this class in a historical sense. Some objects are declared to be typical for a class. They become archetypes of that class. The CRM should model these relationships between objects and classes, as they are essential for scientific and scholarly reasoning.
I propose to regard any "Stuff" as a candidate for archetypical or prototypical role.
Stuff: was prototype of (had prototype) : Type
Stuff: is an archetype of (has as an archetype) : Type
