If I may voice an opinion here, I also think that for the sake of
consistency, scrips should be run for every transaction.

I can, however, think of another solution to the missing transaction:
Make the depended-on-by and referred-to-by fields either display-only or
have them create the transaction on the target object. That way it's
clear that the transaction is always on the originating end of the referral.
