There are actually TWO tables involved: the table upon which the trigger will actually fire, and some other table which is mentioned in passing in the trigger definition. It's possible that the locking requirements for the secondary table are weaker since I don't think the presence of the trigger actually affects runtime behavior there. However, there's probably little point in try to weaken the lock to less than the level required for the main table because a foreign key involves adding referential integrity triggers to both tables.
