RSA-RTE/Modeling associations: Default value cannot be set from properties view

Model an association in the form of a pointer in a class diagram. Since this is a pointer, it makes sense to set the default value to 0.

Setting the default value cannot be done from the properties view of the association. It can only be done from the properties view of the attribute. It makes sense to have this value available in the properties view of the association.

    We should add a field for setting the default value for attributes when selecting a directed association.
