Explanation of error A cycle of uml:OwnedElement exists
This error is reported when a cycle is found in the values of the property
The error is identified during validation; it prevents Canonical XMI diffing where
that test would be applicable. The check for cycles here is equivalent in intent to
the constraint Element:not_own_self() but is more robust than the implementation
of that found in the UML spec.
