I don't think there could be any visual representation (similar to
associations say) since that's extending UML.  But they could be put
in a separate compartment in classes (like operations and attributes
have their own comparment).  I did once try creating a more general
framework which would allow compartments to be added to classes and
other UML things and which included stereotypes, but I failed
miserably.  Maybe I should try it again at some point.
