it depends ;)

In principle this is a good idea and I think its a good addition if it is done at the time you add the relationship and have enough info.

But it has its issues if:

A) the ownership changes (can be fixed by handling on both sides I guess - then it does not matter which side you call)

B) reverse engineering (i.e. hibernatetools plugin) should have these too somehow - but here the owning side is a "best-guess" since the database metadata doesn't really tell you.
