Sometimes i am horrified, and sometime i am the horror: i feel it is quite reasonable to have a generic term (or term of convenience) for a group of generic relationship types. perhaps, Daniel, you are more exact in the cause of your horror, and it is that you don't want to let them have the important word, 'dependency' for this term of convenience. in one personality, i agree with you, while still feeling comfortable with generic (catch-all) terms. in the other personality, my horror is very diffuse: can UML 2.0 say what it means, exactly?
