I think the concept of "hiding" should (at least implementation-wise)
be separated from the relationship.  Binding them together would only
bring us unnecessary complications and limitations.  I explained it
more thoroughly in my previous mail.

Again, exactly.  If the concept we are trying to modell is
master-derivate relationship, we should (at least some day, if not in
the next release) have many-to-many relationship.
