According to the comments in the code, this is a limitation that was
introduced for compatibility with DB2. Being compatible with DB2 is no
longer a requirement for Derby, so if it's not causing any backward
compatibility issues and someone signs up for DERBY-3290, there's
nothing stopping us from lifting the restriction.
