>> It helps with the issue of naming, but it doesn’t address the asymmetry. Now Enrico has married-in and married-on properties, and the reification has date and location properties. Why is this a good model of properties that all come from the same relation where they are all properties of birth certificates?

Too many things were left unsaid in the initial post (e.g.,
domain and range of each property), left for the reader to 
infer from what *is* said.

When such inference is stated, or such absence is flagged,
the response *must* restate what was correctly stated in
the first place, *and* clearly state the corrections and/or
additions; else, we are stuck with fuzzy and incomplete
inferences, which often differ from the original poster's
original and/or revised intent.

Complicated and confusing discussions like this require that
all relevant details be stated clearly in each message, and 
for each example.
