The main drawback is that you have only a single relationship, so you
can't distinguish between different connections from a single
For example, if John has a sister Sue and a mother Jane, you would have:
John has Sue
John has Jane
and you would have no way of telling the difference in the
relationship John has with Sue and Jane.
