3. Choosing a path
Which way to choose, or is there a middle ground?
On one hand it is feasible to have as little data as possible for storage convenience, system performance, ease of data delivery and so on. On the other hand it must be observed that preservation or archival of data is just that, preservation and archival! Which means that there should be as little compromise as possible when preserving data.
The complexity of triggers together with lack of trigger support for several database systems in MIXED makes the inclusion of triggers unwanted at the moment. Triggers will be left out in the first version of MIXED.
