Yes. If you say that f-stop has a domain of class 'Camera', you're
claiming that it makes sense (ie. is consistent) to apply f-stop
properties to resources that are members of that class. "Sub-class" just
says that one set of resources is a subset of another. So we know that
if a resource is of type SLR, and all SLRs are Cameras (ie.
SLR--subClassOf-->Camera), then that resource is also a camera. And if
its a camera, we can use properties applicable to cameras on it.
