 From a conceptual point of view, this is not advisable. A matching is a 
subgraph with max degree 1, whereas a Partition is, well, a partition of 
the vertex set, thus something different. (A partition covers V, a 
matching does not have to, for example.)

However, and that is probably what you mean, both could be implemented 
in a similar way. Still, subclassing is not the way to go here. Would we 
gain something by using a Partition to implement a Matching? Probably 
not due to some subtle differences that would need code for special cases.
