By now, majority of the opinions have shown that they do not favour
two triggers getting fired on a single update. Amit, do you consider
option 2 as a valid option ? That is, fire only UPDATE triggers. BR on
source partition, and AR on destination partition. Do you agree that
firing BR update trigger is essential since it can modify the row and
even prevent the update from happening ?

Also, since a user does not have a provision to install a common
UPDATE row trigger, (s)he installs it on each of the leaf partitions.
And then when an update causes row movement, using option 3 would end
up not firing update triggers on any of the partitions. So, I prefer
option 2 over option 3 , i.e. make sure to fire BR and AR update
triggers. Actually option 2 is what Robert had proposed in the
