Can some kind of checksum be used to demonstrate the non-target tables haven't changed? I haven't thought this out yet, but it seems that if we can logically isolate the non-target tables, contrive some kind of check sum on their values, we might have an easy indicator that nothing has changed in them after the target table has been modified.

What do you think?
