I'm glad you mentioned this. My purpose in gaining familiarity with the OO
literature is to find useful analogies to let me know where to go when I
venture into other areas of research.

I think that the structure of intent structures generated by application
of IM maps to the structure of abstractions in OO programming.

I don't know if intents or goals are the basis for learning, etc. but they
are an important tool when applied systematically and methodically.
