The recursion problem, for one.  Also, if you change the object in one
place, it will also get changed in the other, which may not be the
expected behavior.

You could also do soft links like this (I bet this actually works :-)

class SoftLink (SimpleItem):
  def __init__(self, path):
    self.path = path

  def __of__(self, parent):
    ob = self.restrictedTraverse(self.path)
    return getattr(ob, 'aq_base', ob).__of__(parent)

... but once again, changes made in one place would cause changes in
the other.  And then there are security considerations: how should the
security behave if two users with different roles want to access/change
the object?

I couldn't find your question.  :-(
