+1 for Bèr proposal

Since we're discussing the relation mapping fields, I'd like to invite you to 
think of 2 other fields: title and description. Although each node has its 
own title and body, when it comes to relations, each relationship may have a 
new title and new description which can be different from those of the nodes.


1 - If you're making a list of books (like Amazon's listmania). Each book 
(from bookreview module) has its own title and body, but when you create your 
list of favorite books, you can make annotations regarding what's important 
in each book, why you recommend them, etc.

2 - If you're creating a virtual tour using pictures, although each picture 
has its own title and body, since a picture can take different weights for 
several tours, you can have a different title and description for each 
picture in each relationship. (Bèr, think about it for shazam)

There are many other situations... when you add a buddy you may want to 
describe who he/she is, when you bookmark a node you can write a description,
