Can Alfresco associations carry additional data?

Can an association have additional data associated with it? For instance, in a relationship of a department to its employees, can each association carry a "role" text-string ("Mr. Bean" is an employee of department "Blabla" and his role is "part-time employee"). Is there a general mechanism to attach such additional, per-association data?

In particular, such a mechanism could be used to order children (although there seems to be a way to achieve this, see "OrderedChildren" in the Data Dictionary Guide – but I do not know how this works).
