I don't know if I'd go that far. UML is primarily a requirements
notation, and does not seem to me as well suited for design as for
requirements. It also has a lot of diagrams, each of which adds only a
little information. The reader has to understand each of those many
diagrams and integrate them in his head to understand the system. I
would much prefer a notation with fewer diagrams, each of which conveys
more information.
