for Entity invariant checks I found useful hook via UnitOfWorkCallback.
The one that is executed per entity instance if entity implements UnitOfWorkCallback.
Basically this is how I do cross fields validation for entities.
I am thinking if this hook could be optimized and executed only if entity changed, now it
is executed for all loaded instances.
