I don't know the answer to this, but the picture in my head would permit SQL against the DB2 structures directly, so I'm guessing that will help for anyone requiring SQL.
More importantly for the future, it will be important that anyone using this model be able to use their DB2 data through the multivalue/XML-model U2 view of the data. It would be a shame to take the data that is in non-1NF, then implement it in a 1NF model (which they might not be doing since DB2 has some other possibilities?) and then extract it into a non-1NF format for web services, for example. Direct U2<-->XML would be much smarter, I would think. --dawn Dawn M.

I'd be interested in knowing whether or not Universe applications using DB2 as a data store will require setting up a Universe SQL schema. I'm supposing that it will...
