        Definetely not. There would lie the path to madness.

        Why should developers have free reign over UDTs? There are sure important enough to be centrally managed by DBAs, and specified by system analysts.

        If the company is too bureaucratic and thus managing UDTs becomes a problem, that’s an organisational problem, not a technological one.
