Could the database and grid support creating a People Table?

Database efficiency and consistency could/would be improved by replacing the text fields of Artist, Writer, Cover, etc, with a linked Person Table.


But, does the database and grid support a field with a variable number of references?  A text field can easily record that the writers are "Joe Smith, John Jones", but can the database and grid record in one field that the writers are Person-12345 and Person-67890, and resolve those to "Joe Smith" and "John Jones"?


I guess I'm asking if modern databases and the CB database supports a Table element that is an array?
