Modeling Sitecore Data Templates

Yesterday, one of my best friends asked me, "What is the process you are using to Model sitecore data templates, out of sitecore?"

After that I did some research and came up with the below points.
  • Think sitecore data templates as Object Oriented classes.
  • Use template inheritance as OO Inheritance.
  • Use Class Diagrams to do the initial modeling of data in the site.
  • Think only about the data in the site. Don't think about the design.
  • MS Visio (or any that kind of tool) can be used for draw your initial models

I found following links very useful
        2.3 Templates and Field

Please let me know your idea/methodology about this as comments below.
