Description:

There are both constructors and operations in the 'Operations'
compartment in the Class Element. But their behaviours are different.
Constructors do not have types, they can't be renamed and etc.
So it would be better to have separate 'Constructors' compartment for constructors.

Adding another compartment may cause unnecessary complexity and hence incur
maintenance cost. Maybe a notation like bold text style would suffice? We
currently use underline to denote "static" and italic for "abstract" property.
