For example lets say that there are a clients A, B, C and D. I would
associated them as follows:
By association I mean that I would like to see the clients in the list
at the same time in an optimal fashion (each having about as much space
as possible). Since A should be visible at the same time with the pair
(B,C) as well as with D, I would need either to have A present in both
pages occupied by (B,C) and D or (B,C) and D are in the same tab. Take a
pick. Either will do for me.

Sounds fine.
