Here's a thought: sentences like "Catalogs contain articles, so we introduce a class CITEM." should never appear in any formalization of anything. Avoid pointlessly multiplying concepts by using either "Catalogs contain items, so we introduce a class CITEM." or "Catalogs contain articles, so we introduce a class ARTICLE.". (Decoupling suggests the former, avoiding jargon suggests the latter.)
