-| A: In this case there are two possibilities. Either a relationship is missing indeed. Then you may just add it. This wiki is still work in progress and will ever be. On the other hand there are relationships which are deliberately not there. It is important to understand that the documented relationships are not mathematically clear, academic relationships. Rather it a relationship expresses the fact that in a situation where principle A is considered, B might be worth considering,​ too. That means, the relationships "​is-contrary-to"​ and "​is-complementary-to"​ are /not/ symmetric, although they sound like they should be so. For example considering [[principles:​Keep It Simple Stupid|KISS]] is very often a good idea and one would want to navigate to KISS from various other principles as it is contrary to very many of them. On the other hand one would not want to navigate to all the other principles KISS is contrary to, when considering KISS. So this relationship is not documented as it would be purely academic and not helpful at all. |+| A: In this case there are two possibilities. Either a relationship is missing indeed.
