I said nothing about transit.
I said association by homeworld.
There's also the matter of many different factions controlling different assets within the same cluster.
It doesn't matter when associated by homeworld. Each affliation would be appear to be star-like cluster of lines. You could differentiate those lines by color no matter if the whole cluster belongs to them or not. It wouldn't matter one bit.
Just as International Waters have a set boundary around every coast line so would each Star...the rest is already known as interstellar space. Don't make it harder than it is.
