Yeah, I know!
I once had a discussion with a "database specialist" (a name that he got because he couldn't write code, but he could write SQL Confused | :confused: ) and he really made it a point that we should make some functional field a PK, but only in that one table.
He wasn't susceptible to any logic like "but we shouldn't use a functional key in case the functionality changes" (will never happen), "but it's inconsistent with the rest of the database" and "but using an arbitrary ID isn't more complicated for me, the developer, while it gives us all flexibility in the future" Dead | X|
That whole project never finished and the client got all his money back.
I quit the company before that time though Smile | :)
