In my opinion this looks pretty nice. You still need to update the two
examples Fukushima and Thémis - they are referring to relations and also to
roles which are nowhere defined (perimeter was dropped, plant is not
documented as role).

This is where I still don't understand you: why do I need to specify that a
feature XXX has the role XXX? Why do I need to specify, that a generator is
a generator? A substation a substation? A dam a dam? A valve a valve? A
weir a weir? And so on.

I'm not sure if this is the best key to describe it, but I also don't have
a better one for you, so lets say: it's fine ;-)

Finally I want to thank you for all your efforts on this topic!

Best regards,
