"slots" is an attribute of RIM RegistryObject and since RIM Association
is a subclass/extension of it, Associations also have Slots. See "7.5.9
Attribute slots" on RIM 2.5 specs.

Btw, this is how Republica's prototype works, storing Property Term
and Cardinality in the Association.

Could be confusing if you are not used to the idea, although it should
be explained in the bindings specs. Anyway I like the suggestion you
presented in the other mail - unifying property and cc. Lets think
about it for a while.
