The UML models associations as classifiers that group of two or more
properties that are called its member ends (they are "association
ends"). The association may own these end properties, or the
associated classifiers may own the end properties, or some combination
In the particular case of associations between use cases and actors,
the association has to own the ends because use cases and actors cannot
have properties. So, some of the usual controls that you would see for
association ends in, for example, a class diagram are not applicable
This is all just the way UML associations work. There is nothing
specific to Papyrus, here.
