How do you see the naming as being a problem? To me, as a user (I don't know
anything about the internals of calculation constraints etc.) the word
'constraint' means to me a relationship that influences or limits things.
Something is always constrained to something else.

Link Ton said, would this problem be solved by re-naming 'constraints' to
something like 'relationships' or 'influences'?

Could you explain the problems you see in terms of the end-user interface? I
dont' really understand..
