in thread Tree Structure and Db

A link table is the normal way to enforce referential integrity in many to many relationships (0 or 1 counts as many for these purposes) and in this case prevents orphans; it also enables you to define different types of relationship without putting more illegal or awkwardly-implemented constraints (and adding maybe-null foreign keys for them) on the master table.
