Ok. So, just to get things clear, you have static and *dynamic* constraints. Right? And do you really derive information? Do you have derived tables like views? Can I specify that a certain table is the transitive closure of another? And how complex are the rules? Is it like datalog, like first order logic, like higher order logic, like SQL, like ... well, you understand the question. :-)
