(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.

2p spent.
