What if someone were to write an anonymization script. Something that changes any of the "data" of the database, but leaves all of the relational information. It could turn all strings into some sort of hashed version, so you don't give out any identifiable information. It could even modify relational entries, as long as it updated both ends, and this didn't affect the actual performance at all.
I don't think this would be very hard to write. Especially if you can give a list of the tables, and what columns need to be modified.
Probably this would generally be a useful script to have for cases like this where databases are confidential, but need to be tuned by someone else.
Would that be reasonable? I would think that by renaming columns, hashing the data in the columns, and renaming tables, most of the proprietary information is removed, without removing the database information.
