Thank you for your reply Bryn. I want to take time to digest it, but I'd like to ask the following anyhow,

Does setting the view V to it's current value fail?

I.e. does

        SET V := V fail?

And if so, do you think that that is justifiable, and/or desirable?

Also do all possible DELETES and UPDATES also fail on the XOR view in question? If not, would you think that such incongruity is justifiable?
