Okay, so I might be failing to entirely understand the moby typing
system. In the case I describe I need to define a type such that :
1) It can be discovered as 'set of aligned sequences' as a single entity.
2) It can also be discovered as a collection of 'sequence'
As I understood it the collection / simple wasn't part of the ontology
so this isn't possible? Effectively I believe that 'set of aligned
sequences' cannot be made a restriction of 'collection of 'sequence'' as
the collection concept isn't part of the ontology - is this wrong?
