destroyers?

The article mentions triggers as "the potential database destroyers with which relational data jockeys would be familiar". I am familiar with triggers, though not particularly as database destroyers. The relational model is fine for describing valid states of a database, but does not provide saw what transitions are valid. Triggers are a sensible way to do this.
