Good! The approach you describe should work for many classes, especially
in metadata and referencing packages. On the feature package however the
changes are more significant.

The replacement for DefaultAssociationType is DefaultAssociationRole
[1]. I'm not sure it works the same however. The SIS classes are modeled
according ISO 19109, contrarily to the Geotk classes which were modeled
according an XML schema. At a first look the SIS model may seem
incomplete because it has fewer classes than the Geotk model. In
particular there is nothing special about "simple features" versus
"complex features"; there is only "features". But despite appearance,
the feature model in Apache SIS 0.8 should be complete (except for the
"Moving Features" part, but this is another topic). It should have
equivalent capability for the main tasks, while consuming less memory
and being about twice faster [2]. Do not hesitate to ask if you have any
