It's a matter of opinion. UML thinks that <| points is pointing in the "right" direction (towards the more general object). However, a lot of people think about inheritance as methods flowing from/provided by the super thing to the sub thing. That perspective is more in alignment with ->
At this stage, choice of a symbol seems to be most about what will cause the lesser about of opposition based solely upon the symbol choice. Some people seem top really hate <|. If there a reasonable alternatives that don't generate the same sort of negative response then it is worth considering them.
