In reference to polyamory, both have to same amount of openness and consent involved; as opposed to Infidelity in some relationships; but the multi-amorous dynamic does have to include all the types of romantic love and symmetry you would see in a polyamorous relationship, but could lead to such dynamics if they were possible.
Or something like that...make a wiki!!(it's openly editable, lulz)

i'll think of more while i'm at work
I don't think I understand the difference between multiamory as you describe it, and polyamory as we generally think of it.

Specifically, to what "pre-defined topological structure" are you referring? As I understand it, there is no "set way" to do polyamory. The only distinguishing figure is having multiple romantic relationships.

However, "mutiamorous" is good in that it doesn't mix greek and latin roots

"Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. " -- Louis de Bernières
