> Derby currently treats COUNT as a reserved word. This prevents having COUNT as a table
name or a column name as shown below. It would be good to move COUNT from reserved word to
a non-reserved word list. Having COUNT as a reserved word also causes problems while porting
applications to Derby.

> Note that SQL standard says COUNT is a reserved word, but Derby treats several of these
reserved words as non-reserved words already. (CLOB for example)
