This is a statement I happen not to agree with. It's been more than once that I'd have been happy to use identifiers for tables that had been longer than 30 characters. Because you don't want or need them, doesn't mean the same thing for me. And lastly, if I actually could create objects with longer names doesn't stop you from not doing so, but the opposite isn't unfortunately true.
