You are maybe suggesting to create "empty brands", meaning to create a named 
drug, but without linkage to the one or more components of the brand?

AFAICT GNUmed's data structure will not allow this.

Presently it is required to

        - first create one or more component substances, including strength
                (if they did not already exist)

and then

        - create the Brand, where (in the creation) one or more components must 
be linked.

If -- in the course of (trying to) add a new Brand -- it is discovered that a 
required component or component strength did not exist, it would be nice to be 
able to create them in inside the same dialog (or in a child dialog) without 
having to leave the Brands UI and later come back.
