We're talking about "data scientists" for whom software development is not their primary focus. Since SPs and triggers do not share SQL's advantage of being declarative; they are instead imperative, and non-developers should spend as little time as possible within imperative domains.

I'm not as anti-trigger as I am SP. Though I stay away from triggers in any case as the rest of the world is fairly negative on them.
