In my opinion, any time multiple parents are used it is a mistake in the
data model. For example, if you have regional offices and each office
has a sale, customer and advertising contact person, you might be
tempted to model the data like this:
One quickly sees, however, that the cleaner model would be two
vocabularies, one for location, one for contact person. I have no use
for multiple parents and would support deprecating it for eventual removal.
