(I'm not JJ, but I thought I'd chip in! :)
In my experience the RDBMS triggers, etc are not developer time checks
and remain in force during production. If you've got multiple systems
a database then the only way to enforce these kind of checks is within
the RDBMS. There's no guarantees that the application level logic will be
consistent across all your applications.
