No. 'Data' never requires constraints. It just is. The constraints reflect our preference for simpler situations that are easier for us to record and especially to process. The world, even people, is always more flexible than we can accept.

We forget that, and run off and create giant piles of constraints, and pretend that they are capabilities rather than signs of our (and our tools') deep brokenness.
