It sure is! As long as the majority of developers feel comfortable viewing the architectural concepts from an OO-perspective, it should be a very helpful tool.

I'm thinking it could be used by others than developers..
Rose is used in business development to help understand
things like logistics and accounting system relationships and
business processes.. So UML is gradually becoming a
general "idea" diagramining language..

That's what I was hoping it could be used for.. What makes
ArgoUML especially useful the ability to document
entities in a use-case diagram.. I don't know of any
diagraming tool that allows this kind of annotation..
The ideas of the web is based on hyper-text, and hyper-text
is merely the same as writing comments in the margins of a
book.. So to make our resources and ideas more useful we
should have ways of abstracting them into diagrams and documenting
them so they can be understood instantly without much
discussion..

So I may abuse ArgoUML to get a idea description
language, but maybe there is a better tool for
this that does the same thing without as much
programmatic/logic constraints?
