Thanks for the advice, Karl. As this project is already under way in SQL Server, an OODB is out, so it looks like I'm going to settle for having a good-looking RDB!

If you want your relation database to look and feel as object oriented as possible, be consistent and store attributes by them self and keep the links of any relation (association/superrelation) in one table per relation.
This is however not very speedy and will require multiple queries or joins to find the other end of any relation.
