The other reason is to make the application database-transparent and, somewhere down the line, switch to the cheaper alternative (MSSQL). Also, business rules in .NOT layer would convert those guys from mere programmers into "business analysts" and "project managers". This way, somebody else communicates with the business users and all they do is coding. I find the open policy to be the best one. You should have open debate of pluses and minuses of both, instead of conducting office politics and lobying with the senior management.
