I like the idea of being able to define more flexible foreign keys,
but are we gilding the lily here?  The proposed solution is really
quite specific to the nuances of arrays.  Perhaps there is a more
general expression based syntax that leaves the door open for other
types conditions such as dealing fields dependent on other fields?
