To OpportunityContactRole or not to OpportunityContactRole, that is the question.

We're at a point where we can implement something with the standard OpportunityContactRole's, or, with Spring '07 we could create a custom lookup relationship between Contacts and Opportunities ourselves.

Aside from the loss of cascading deletes, and the security model, does anybody see any advantages going one way or another?  (Or both in some twisted world.)

A different question is:  What is Salesforce's long term plan for these mapping objects like OpportunityContactRoles.  Will they die?  Live forever and expand?, or gently fade into the long dark night?

Thanks, Steve.
