Can you really get away from having something like a category for
this, even if you don't call it a category? You mentioned "some
banners," implying that some banners won't be allowed to appear on a
generic page. So, how are you planning to flag these?
I need to use the join table, yes. But preferrably not the category
one, e.g. save null or perhaps a non-existing category id (0?), if I
could figure out how.
