Subject Re: restricting qualifiers turned off?

One possibility is to install a custom DataChannel between DataContext  
and DataDomain, and intercept and modify certain queries there.  
Chaining DataChannels hasn't been tested extensively, so there might  
be some pitfalls, but generally this is the easiest way to intercept  
all traffic going between the app and the DB.
