Editing related record in a mm field, and not the mm record
It would be great if one could edit the related record within a IRRE field instead of the mm table. Imagine you have an article and want to add existing authors (mm), but you don't want to edit the relation, you wan't to directly pop the author open and edit the author (tt_address) within the current record.
This would help a lot to integrate IRRE in existing record types just by changing TCA and not the sql/db structure.

Regular clean m:n relation. It should be possible to edit the related record it selve instead of mm relation table record...
It should also be possible to select within existing records and add them into the IRRE field.
At the moment it's just possible to add new records which are related 1:n

Hm, maybe you want to have a look at my diploma thesis (pages 23 "m:n" and 37 "combined mode")?

I also think it will be good feature. I know there is combined mode when you can edit records, but if you have a lot of relations it works very very slow as all records getting loaded in one window. I was running into it several times when I have had to add more relations. In such case combined mode becomes useless and you have to switched it off and if you need edit related record then manually seach one in list view and then edit. Would be nice to have icon to edit related record and then getting the record in pop up window or loaded in the same window instead of parent record.
