Title says it all: It would be great to have a button to simply copy the name of the entity to the association alias.

It shouldn't be hard to create such logic. I'm thinking if owner alias should be pasted as singular form or try to add "s" / "es" to the end of alias.

The best way will be add "s" based on association type. Only problem is that default value isn't specified. So another improvement will be choose default association type as one-to-many and parent required.

This should be a configuration option imho. In some projects we use pluralization, in others we do not. Then sometimes we use German in the data model and that has totally different rules, an "s" as a suffix is usually not enough then.
But adding a plural S is not too much trouble when "CustomerSpecificContactWayForReport" is already auto-copied. ;)

Ok, no problem with customization ;-)
