please try to keep all suggestions in the thread online. So we have a good 
thread that shows the progress and ideas all toghether. 

But about the body and title: No. IMO that really dos not belong in th 
relationships. You are free to add your own module and table, like 
node_wrapper.module, that makes new nodes, yet uses (parts of) the content of 
other nodes. That is, IMO the way to go with this. You can use the relation 
mappings for that ;)

and the pictures can already take different weights in each gallery where hey 
appear, in shazamgallery. with the current table.
