A standardized and widely used diagramming notation is a sign of a profession's maturity. It simplifies the life of the diverse group of people who read the drawings, it improves the quality of the drawings, and it benefits the profession through network effects.

We should adopt the graphic notation techniques of Unified Modeling Language (UML).
