G'day mathgroup,
I have some general questions on Implementation of dependencies and
properties in Mathematica.

I want to replicate a structure with certain properties. For example Product
"Building", has Property "Stock", Stock = {FirstStock, SecondStock,
ThirdStock }
Stock has Flat = {RightFlat, LeftFlat},
Flat has Properties  = {Owner, Price, Area}.

The way I found to work with such constructions in Mathematica is ^=:

My Questions are:
Is there any other smarter ways to build such dependencies up?
How can I automatically from Properties Lists {FirstStock, SecondStock,
ThirdStock }, {RightFlat, LeftFlat},  {Owner, Price, Area} and
DependanceList = {Stock, Flat, Properties}
(the list which shows which property refers to which one) generate all
objects of type:
Property[Flat[Stock[Building]]] ?
And finally how can one visualize it?

Any help or comments will be appreciated.
