Limitations

We can't easily model Ash relationships with Mermaid diagrams because they are unidirectional and could be asymmetric. Mermaid assumes symmetrical, bidirectional relationships. If we try to model all unidirectional relationships as separate lines in the diagram it gets very hard to read very quickly.
