Agreed, I'm certainly not proposing modifying the tables, I was kind of
hoping that there is some ability planned to do this, or (very
optimistically!) someone with knowledge could point at some cunning
ideas that I haven't thought of. Data integrity doesn't strike me as
something that should be outside the realm of a CMS, especially as you
say because the tables should be black-box to applications.
