Comment:

 I think that usually a foreign key (and therefore, inline formsets) would
 be used for a one to many relation.

 Renaming `MultiValueField` would likely cause more disruption than its
 worth.

 It's not clear to me how the field that you propose would be implemented.
 Feel free to implement something and share it to the
 DevelopersMailingList. If it becomes so popular that 80% of Django
 projects are using it, perhaps we would consider adding it to Django,
 however, I think the use case probably doesn't merit it. There are plenty
 of third-party apps providing useful form fields that don't need to be a
 part of Django itself.
