Please, no. Referential integrity is the only warrenty of data ever
correct and coherent.
A correct schema, well written, are not slower as a full set of dirty

Please, build koha around a well written data schema, ad the
application will be easer tu build and to manage.

PS: for the MARC dispute... i think that koha *MUST* speak MARC, but
this dont'mean that koha have to usa marc as a internal storage
