Actually there is only one relation, but it can be read both ways.

Let's take X parent Y

1/ you could create 'Y child X' using hooks

2/ you could simply fix the translation messages in order to display
'child' when the message says 'parent_object'.

I would use 2/, for maintaining consistency of 1/ is probably too much
work for what it buys you.

Or... wait for 3/ a rule system implemented in cubicweb

But 3/ is certainly not before version 4.0 is open for development
some time in early 2011 :)
