Well i could like something that denotes base classes, but it needs to 
define abreviations for each base class and makes the names less readable...
In fact i like full names :). Abreviations are always more things you 
have to remember. And I don't think we are going to spell the full names 
of base classes are we?
Take this as first impression, perhaps you will decide to do something 
else and i will like it at the end :).
