Relationships In OO Languages

Gavin Bierman and Alisdair Wren published a paper that shows how to add first class relationships to Object Oriented Languages (pdf) (via LtU). At first instant I liked it. In some cases the relationships can be considered to be messages. I wonder whether it will end up facing the same problems that single dispatch and double dispatch paradigms have faced. Or will it be able to do more than binary relationships?

Say your thought!
