A topographic location. Regions encompass
surfaces of Objects, imaginary places, and GeographicAreas. Note
that a Region is the only kind of Object which can be located at
itself. Note too that Region is not a subclass of SelfConnectedObject,
because some Regions, e.g. archipelagos, have parts which are not
connected with one another.
SUMO / BASE-ONTOLOGY
