Do you really think all data integrity rules should be kept by the database itself ? What about that rules that can not ? What if the database is not able to support them at all or rules is so complicated that being supported by the DB they make the whole system performing so badly that it's better not to use the system at all ?

What about people who can get around validation rules - there are many ways to implement a system in a way that does not allow direct access to the database.
