Are subclasses mutually exclusive?

A quick question...

Should members of any particular subclass be unique to that subclass,
i.e. can they belong to more than one subclass?

In our Arabidopsis database we already have several Sequence subclasses
(genomic, mitochondrial, etc.) and I would possibly like to include a new
subclass for Sequences derived from one particular ecotype of Arabidopsis.
It is possible though, that these sequences might also satisfy the
requirements of another subclass and so I would like to know whether this
might cause problems.

Thanks in advance,
