I posted a working example [1] showing how there's no need to have the same
structure at the RDBMS layer and the JSON layer. I asked for more
information about modelling difficulties you said you had encountered, but
didn't hear anything more about it. AFAICT the code you were talking about
isn't public - at least, I couldn't see it in the branches on your GitHub repo.

As my example shows, it's possible to have a sensible RDBMS structure which
interoperates with multiple entries in "requires". If I've misunderstood
something, please let me know what it is.
