Take a look at the "Associations" section of these page:

So in your example, if a dspace / fedora run in a servlet container
(which is a standard) which depends on Java (which is both a standard
and a project) would you be expecting to break those out?
If so, that's a lot of entities and your proposed mockups are going to
have to be redone; If not, you can’t do proper dependency tracking.
