Executive Summary

One already knows that the Unified Modeling Language (UML) is not perfect; but, how far does its imperfection go? This paper tries to answer that question; by extracting the work of different investigators (who disclose and study defects in UML), it finds serious imperfections in the whole. In the end, it explains why either an improvement in the extensibility mechanisms of the language or - even better - the creation of a suite of modeling languages is necessary and urgent.
