Has anyone used the "contains" relationship for the Ace?

Iv'e been listing them separately, only indicating the ace number so I'll know what's backed by what.

I also catalog each title separately. An example, Philip K. Dick, Solar lottery:

I use the Tag field for imprint info, Ace Books D-103, Ace Double. In the Comments field I include a note, Bound with: The big jump / Leigh Brackett.

I disagree with the terminology "Contains" for cataloging this format. I prefer that LT use "Bound with" for these types of books. These are not anthologies/collections/omnibus' as such, but just an instance where two distinct/unique works are bound together largely for marketing purposes. See: http://people.uncw.edu/smithms/Other_dos.html

Overall I like the "Contains" concept, but not for Ace Doubles.
