Summary0002455: Support Abstract Supertype
DescriptionThe abstract supertype is a setting on an SuperObjectType which is marked abstract. This requires a subtype instancing, and therefor an inter-TC over all available subtypes. This requirement makes the TC appear on subtypes, and all future subtypes. Removing a subtype should adjust the TC instead of removing it.

Merging an abstract supertype should also take this Abstract-indicator to adjust or add the TC in the target model.

Abstract Supertype will be visualized using a dashed ellipse instead of a closed ellipse. This way the abstract types can be visually recognized in diagrams.

.. And similar to the UML Abstract Class standard, the OTFT Name will be printed in italics.

Model well-formedness validates for both subtypes missing from the TC, as well as missing TC from an abstract supertype.
