+<p>The columns which make up the primary key must be listed first in the schema.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Columns that are part of the primary key cannot be renamed.
+The primary key may not be changed after the table is created.
+You must drop and recreate a table to select a new primary key
+or rename key columns.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>The primary key of a row may not be modified using the <code>UPDATE</code> functionality.
+To modify a row&#8217;s primary key, the row must be deleted and re-inserted with
+the modified key. Such a modification is non-atomic.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Columns with <code>DOUBLE</code>, <code>FLOAT</code>, or <code>BOOL</code> types are not allowed as part of a
+primary key definition. Additionally, all columns that are part of a primary
+key definition must be <code>NOT NULL</code>.</p>

+<p>Type and nullability of existing columns cannot be changed by altering the table.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Dropping a column does not immediately reclaim space. Compaction must run first.
+There is no way to run compaction manually, but dropping the table will reclaim the
+space immediately.</p>
