Without the data you wouldn't have an application. Without data integrity you end up with a heaping pile of bits. Without data integrity you have performance problems. (eg optimizer has to make unwarrented assumptions about your data) Tell me, do you just use one data type in Java, Strings? Of course not. So why would you do the same in the db? Do you only have 1 class in Java, class generic? Of course not. So why would you do the same in the db?
