Well, design is in fact the work of dividing the task into smaller,
manageable ones, and specifying how they interact. Ada aids this with
the package system and spec files. So other languages need external
tools for this while in Ada it is built-in.

Ada 95 is exactly OO - there isn't any feature missing. Or can you name
one?

You can use UML with it, there are tools that support it, I can't recall
the name but Google for UML and Ada and you will find it.

But IMHO the whole UML is "The Emperorís New Suit" (by Hans Christian
Andersen), if you know what I mean.
