I think it gets easier when you think of a relation as a data structure that
allows to combine links to other objects with tags. That's what it is,
nothing more. Only the tags give a hint about the meaning of this
combination, and one always has to bear in mind that different mappers might
see different meanings, not talking about simple errors.

This is also the explanation for the problems reg. the consumers and
editors. Without a general rule each type of relation needs a lot of code to
allow rendering and proper editing support. A relation type that is not
often used or that is used with unclear meaning is not likely to find a
supporting programmers.
