Thank you for your reply, Ed!|

Since Sirius sounds more accessible to nontechnical users than Ecore, I was wondering whether such users could change the domain model structure without directly interacting with Ecore once both Ecore and Sirius appear to show the same information through different visual appearances...Does it make sense?
However, AFAIAA, Sirius doesn't seem to interact with the Ecore model's annotations, which prevents us to graphically represent the sort of information we find, say, in UML's sequence and activity diagrams, i.e., behaviour. I've seen Sirius tutorials with examples upon a family intrastructure and projects' tasks and collaborators interstructure, no method implementation at all, just attributes and structural relations.
Sirius seems to help when one needs to graphically represent many instances (many family members or many projects, tasks and collaborators) of the diagram's classes, allowing to manage the complexity through filtering relations, hiding and highlighting elements, conditioning styles, zooming into the diagram's area(s) and navigating within the diagram. All these features are more valuable to purely structural representation, rather than to ease the understanding of the system behaviour.
I'd appreciate if you could highlight the flaws in my reasoning above.
