I found Chapter 15 of Scott W. Amber's 'agile modeling' persuasive .
It's entitled 'The UML and Beyond' and in it he argues that:
* The UML is not sufficient for the development of business software
* The UML is more complex than what most developers need
* The UML is not a methodology or a process
* The vision of Executable UML is ahead of its time.
For all that, he ends up using a subset of UML, with caveats warning people
to beware of UML hype. He also supplements UML with other tools.
I appreciate his realism.
