Slowly Changing Dimension handling

Lots of good ideas/suggestions here.
I can think that there are (at least) two ways of looking at it.

  1. It can be useful for relationships to have properties themselves. So for example, a relation to an organisation could have a checkbox to indicate that it is ‘current’.
    See here:
    Relationship properties
    although this did not explicitly mention the exact use case being discussed here.

  2. An entity has a history, and sometimes it’s useful for other items to link to a specific historical version of an entity rather than the current one.
